Firehouse Theatre to Present Once on This Island March 29 – April 14, 2019
March 29 @ 7:00 pm - April 14 @ 7:00 pm$14
The Firehouse Theatre will present Ahrens & Flaherty’s Once on This Island March 29 – April 14, 2019. 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.
“In today’s social climate, at a time when our politics and headlines challenge us with building literal walls around our borders, this story feels more relevant than ever,” states Once on This Island director Marilyn Setu. “The Firehouse Theatre has not only hired a diverse cast to tell this story, but also brought on a leadership team consisting of All People of Color to tell a story which on the surface, is about colonization, class, and colorism. At its core, Once on This Island is a story of a love that conquers all. It is a story of a young woman who fights and endures the ultimate sacrifice to make the world a better and more inclusive place. We are extremely proud of the diverse cast we have assembled to tell this beautiful story.”
Show times are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm. Tickets start at $14 and can be purchased at the Box Office (972-620-3747) or online at thefirehousetheatre.com. Special ticket pricing for groups and students are available.
