The Firehouse Theatre presents Once on This Island
The Firehouse Theatre will present Ahrens & Flaherty’s Once on This Island. Winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, this Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale The Little Mermaid celebrates storytelling with a Calypso-flavored tale of one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice.
In the PG-rated musical, a peasant girl rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island and falls in love with him, but is shunned by his people due to her low social status. She pays the ultimate price for loving him, but the gods have something special in store for her sacrifice.
