Cast Announced for ‘Once on This Island’
Little Theatre of Owatonna is pleased to announce the cast for its summer production of “Once on This Island.”
“Once on This Island” is by Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty. The Artistic Director is Heather Burke, the Technical Director is Victoria Bartkowiak, the Music Director is Michael Burke and the Choreographer is Kyra Rahn.
Join us on a Calypso-filled journey of one small girl who finds love in the most unlikely of places. Her new-found love must be proved not only through the tests laid out by the pompous gods who preside over the island, but also by the trials and tribulations she must face as a lowly peasant. This Tony Award-winning musical is a highly original and theatrical mashup of the classic tale of “Romeo and Juliet,” and the well-loved tale of “The Little Mermaid.” It’s an exciting and energetic adventure for the whole family to enjoy. We hope you’ll join our little village and find out why we tell the story.
