“Once On This Island” is a one-act musical based on the book “My Love, My Love” by Rosa Guy.  Set in the French Antilles in the Caribbean Sea (specifically Haiti), the play includes elements of “Romeo and Juliet” and “The Little Mermaid,” as it tells the story of the star-crossed love between a peasant girl and a wealthy boy.  The history of Haiti and its class struggles are explored while their love story is told.

“Once On This Island” will open on Thursday, February 9, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the R. Dean Acheson Theatre on Roeper’s Birmingham campus, located at 1051 Oakland Ave. 7pm.  Additional performances will be held throughout the weekend on Friday, February 10th at 7:00 p.m.; Saturday, February 11th at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.; and Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
