CARIBBEAN-INFUSED FAMILY MUSICAL TO OPEN @ OLNEY THEATRE CENTER
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND
WHEN: April 9-May 4, 2014 WHERE: on the Mainstage, Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road, Olney
From the Tony-winning creators of RAGTIME and SEUSSICAL comes a glorious, Caribbean-infused family musical of enormous heart and magical wisdom. Set in Haiti in the early 20th Century, ISLAND follows the story’s young heroine, Ti Moune, as she uses the power of love and storytelling to bring together a community torn apart by racial and economic difference.
Full of capricious gods, island magic, and joyous dance numbers, Olney’s production is directed by Alan Muraoka, proprietor of Sesame Street’s Hooper’s Store since 1997. (Recommended for ages 5 and up)
