Once on this Island
We are extremely proud to announce our first musical concert, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND! Most recently revived on Broadway, Once on this Island celebrates storytelling with a rousing Calypso-flavored tale of one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice. For our first semi-staged concert, Small Town Theatrics is ecstatic to be bringing this heartfelt one-act production to the stage!

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.
