The Levoy Theatre presents "Once On This Island"

(MILLVILLE, NJ) -- The Levoy Theatre presents Once On This Island from February 9-11, 2024. The musical is based upon the novel "My Love, My Love" by Rosa Guy and features a Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens with Music by Stephen Flaherty. In the play, Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. 

Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel’s heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them

Performances take place on Friday, February 9 at 8:00pm; Saturday, February 10 at 2:00pm & 8:00pm; and Sunday, February 11 at 3:00pm.  Tickets are available for purchase online. The Levoy Theatre is located at 126-130 N. High Street in Millville, New Jersey.

Once On This Island is presented through special arrangment with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
