aboutOOTI

A Caribbean Fairytale!

As the show opens, a child is terrified by a tropical storm, and the community comes together to comfort her with a story. On an island where people are separated by color and class, the four Gods (Earth, Water, Love, and Death) place a bet. A young girl leaves her humble upbringing to pursue her true love, the Prince, only to be faced with an impossible choice. With Calypso-flavored music and fantastical storytelling, Once on This Island is a celebration of hope and kindness that will nourish your soul.

Come see ArtsCentric at its finest in the WILDLY imaginative production that you won't be able to find anywhere else.
