In this stylistic and colorful adaptation of "The Little Mermaid", one girl journeys through life overcoming obstacles of love, prejudice, hate, and death. Set to the backdrop of Haitian culture and the music of the islands, Once on this Island reminds us that every human being shares a connection: the all-conquering power of love. A fun, tap your feet, dance in the aisles show, ...Island reunited the Tony Award Winning duo of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime) to create a score filled with rich and authentic music. With an intimate and story-theatre style presentation, Lynn Ahrens' book is bound to entertain audiences of all races and ages.
