We can’t believe it but it’s almost the end of summer and you know what means: our mainstage season is just around the corner!

But before we kick off our landmark 40th Anniversary Season, our Summer Musical Theatre Intensive (SMTI) Junior Session is taking center stage with their production of Once On This Island this weekend, Aug. 6-8.

From the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Seussical, Ragtime) comes the Olivier Award-winning Once On This Island. This highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy 15829_956660064376724_310560760827849491_ntale The Little Mermaid garnered eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical.

Celebrate storytelling with this rousing Calypso-flavored tale of one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice.

  • 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7
  • 1 & 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8
