Once On This Island Summary

This studio production, directed by senior Kathryn Durkin, will be performed at Toquet Hall. Featuring a cast of 20, this show features some fabulous music and creative storytelling.
Taking place on a Caribbean island divided by social prejudice, ‘Once On This Island’ is a calypso-flavored re-telling of the traditional “Little Mermaid” tale. The show revolves around Ti Moune, a poor peasant girl, who falls in love with Daniel, an upper class boy whose life she saves after a car crash. Various gods control the peasants’ lives including the god of Love, (Erzulie) Earth (Asaka), Water (Agwe), and Death (Papa Ge). The show focuses on the effects social class divisions have on love.
