Arcadia Theatre presents musical Once on this Island


The Arcadia Theater in Wellsboro will present the musical “Once on this Island” this weekend, September 20th and 22nd. Since its arrival to stage in 1990, the award-winning musical, based on “My Love, My Love” by Rosa Guy, has been performed internationally, including a recent sell out Broadway revival. The story follows the orphan Ti Moune and her search for love, with the help of  the fantastical gods on a small island in the Caribbean. The show moves through themes of destiny, cultural division, and sacrifice, expressed alongside an exciting reggae/caribbean original music score.

Peter Davis, general manager of Arcadia Theater and the show’s director, produces shows every year with students of Mansfield University. The production involves students of all backgrounds, and provides a unique musical experience in a professional setting.  ‘Once on this Island’ promises audience members a wonderful and moving show with thrilling music performed by a talented cast. ‘Once on this Island’ will play Friday, September 20 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 22 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Adults are $18.00 and students are $12.00.
