Woodside High stages 'Once on this Island'

 

Woodside High School students will present as their spring musical, "Once on this Island," in five performances March 18-26 at the Performing Arts Center on the school campus, 199 Churchill Ave.

The play is based on Trinidadian author Rosa Guy's novel, "My Love, My Love," set on an island in the French Antilles.

The plot, based on Hans Christian Anderson's "The Little Mermaid," involves a group of Caribbean peasants, a pair of lovers, and a pact with the devil, and is laced with themes of class distinction and racial prejudice.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. on March, 18, 19, 25, 26; and 2 p.m. on March 20.

Visit woodsidehs.org/drama or call 367-9750 to buy tickets. Tickets will also available after school at the Performing Arts Center box office starting March 10. The price is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students and staff.
