ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is a beautiful and passionate Caribbean-based musical by the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (RAGTIME, SEUSSICAL) based upon the book "My Love, My Love" by Rosa Guy. The show tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the temperamental gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death.|

Brooklyn Players Community Musical Theater was started in the fall of 2010 to extend to adults and older teens the opportunites that Brooklyn Players has provided to young people for over a decade: to nurture talent, raise the bar for existing talent, and most of all, create a safe space for growth in a talent pool that is diverse in performing experience, training, age and background. BPCMT is dedicated to non-traditional casting racially and otherwise.
