The musical Once On This Island will be coming to the Hershey Theatre from December 3rd to the 8th. In 2018, this show won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

The story is set on a tropical island and follows a peasant girl named Ti Moune. Guided by the island’s gods, she sets out to reunite with the man she loves. On her adventure, she brings people together from across various social classes.

Once On This Island is directed by the two time Tony Award nominated Michael Arden and choreographed by Camille A. Brown, a 2019 Tony Award nominee for best choreographer.
