About this show

Red Branch Theatre Company, the professional theatre company in residence at Drama Learning Center, is pleased to announce its next production! Once On This Island is an original Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale The Little Mermaid. Based on the novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy, the fast-paced story follows island peasant girl Ti Moune as she rescues and falls in love with the wealthy Daniel from the other side of the island. Four elemental island gods lead Ti Moune on a mission to test her love for Daniel against all odds in this nonstop, song-and-dance story. With a catchy, Caribbean-inspired score brought to you by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (the same songwriting team responsible for Ragtime and animated feature Anastasia), Once On This Island garnered eight Tony® nominations during its Broadway run.
