British Theatre Academy presents
Once On This Island
Book & Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Music by Stephen Flaherty
Once On This Island is a captivating calypso-flavoured re-telling of the Little Mermaid fairy tale. The story begins on a Caribbean island where villagers comfort a little girl with the legend of the romance of the peasant orphan Ti Moune, and a rich city boy whom she saves from death. The Island Gods have different plans for her story, but Ti Moune is destined to love too much for the human heart to bear.
Presented by the British Theatre Academy, this youth production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).
Please note that this show features strong strobe lighting and haze.
