The current toast of Broadway, Once On This Island – a riff on the Little Mermaid fairy tale, told through beautiful island music – is now open at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater through July 1.

Ti Moune, a peasant girl, falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel. Unbeknownst to her, the pompous gods of the island make a bet over which is stronger, love or death – the stakes being Ti Moune’s life.

When Daniel returns to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love is not enough to win Daniel’s heart. Will Ti Moune pay the ultimate price?

Winner of the 1995 Olivier Award in London for Best New Musical, this show features exciting island-flavored songs, including “Waiting for Life,” “One Small Girl,” “The Human Heart” and “Why We Tell the Story.”

The cast includes: El More (Mama Euralie), Tim Judah (Tonton Julian), Shonda Moore (Ti Moune), Jared Roper (Daniel Beauxhomme), Garrett Klaas (Armand), Loren Richardson (Andrea), Chandler Hoffert (Papa Ge), Tia Seay (Asaka), R. DeAndre Smith (Agwe), Brittany Hayes (Erzulie) and Kiree Harris (Little Ti Moune).

The production is helmed by Jay Goodlett, Director/Choreographer, and Damon Stevens, Music Director. Richard Zenk serves as Production Stage Manager.
