Once On This Island

OOTILogoOnce on This Island was written by the TONY Award-winning songwriting team, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Seussical, Ragtime). This Caribbean adaptation of the The Little Mermaid earned eight TONY nominations for its Broadway run, including Best Musical, Book and Score.

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Ti Moune is unaware that the gods who preside over the island make a bet with each other over which is stronger, love or death. The stakes? Ti Moune’s life. After Daniel returns to his people, Ti Moune pursues him but is shunned because of her lowly status. Will Ti Moune’s determination and love for Daniel be enough to break through the class separation on the island and win her love Daniel’s heart?
