"Once on This Island" is the story of Ti Moune, a young peasant girl, and Daniel, an upper-class Creole, as told by a troupe of peasant storytellers to a young girl. The story explores classic dramatic themes including class distinction, racial prejudice, children pursuing their dreams despite their parents’ wishes, death, promises, and at the heart of the story, unrequited love.
This exciting American musical with book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Steven Flaherty is based on Rosa Guys’ novel, "My Love, My Love," which in turn was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s "The Little Mermaid." When performed on Broadway, the musical garnered 8 Tony nominations including Best Musical, Best Book and lyrics and Best Music.
