CHURUBUSCO — The Churubusco High School Theater Department is preparing for this year’s musical, “Once on This Island,” which will be presented 7 p.m. May 4 and 5 in the Jason Smith Auditorium.
“Once on this Island” is a Broadway musical celebration that sweeps the audience across the sea to a small Caribbean village, where, in the aftermath of a great storm, a joyous new life begins. It is the tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures threaten to keep them apart, Ti Moune, guided by the island gods, sets out on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
