Neumann University Players perform the island inspired tale Once on This Island March 14-17 in the Meagher Theatre.
Long ago, a violent storm raged around the small Caribbean island and storytellers comforted a frightened child named Ti Moune. She is an orphan girl chosen by the gods for a special fate and saved for a special destiny by Asaka, mother of the Earth.
Now a grown-up, Ti Moune falls in love with a handsome young man, but the relationship seems doomed because they are from different social classes.
In a quest to test the strength of love, Ti Moune battles the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death.
With its Caribbean flavor, inspiration from The Little Mermaid, and the same artistic team that created last year’s stunning production of Working, Once on This Island promises to be a visual and auditory feast of almost non-stop song and dance.
Performances run March 14, 15 & 16 at 8 p.m., and March 17 at 2 p.m. General admission is $10. Students and seniors are $5. For tickets please call 610-361-5455. www.neumann.edu/players
