Once on This Island

When: June 5-27, 8 p.m. and June 5-July 27, 2 p.m. 2019

For 90 minutes in June, the multigenerational cast of Once on This Island will make people become believers in love. Directed by Salim Razawi, with dance, song and a magnificent story of risk and reward inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid and based on Rosa Guy’s book, My Love, My Love, Once on This Island one woman’s journey in the French Antilles transcends slave/master divisions, light/dark skin discrimination, death and more. Protagonist Ti Moune, a peasant whose heart hooks onto a wealthy man, prays to the gods for direction. Ultimately, it is her selflessness, courage, and strength that lead to … well go, lest the tale be spoiled. CCCT is a tiny, intimate theater company and venue: the epic, universal stories told since 1960 are not.
