TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Contra Costa Civic Theatre Presents “Once on This Island”

Jun 29, 2019
The 1990 musical “Once on This Island,” currently playing at the Contra Costa Civic Theatre in El Cerrito, CA. through July 21, is a modern retelling of “The Little Mermaid” told in joy-filled song and dance. It takes audiences to the Caribbean where the beloved fairytale of a peasant girl is told who falls in love with a wealthy boy, while the gods who rule the island make a bet with each other over which is stronger, death or love.

Leading the cast is Tanaka Dunbar Ngwara, who takes on the central role of young peasant girl Ti Moune. Among those joining her on stage are Natalie Oei as Goddess of Love Erzulie, Leslie Ivy as Asaka, Mother of Earth, Rocky James Concepcion as God of Water Agwe, and Brianna Grey Rodriguez as Papa Ge, Demon of Death.

Run time is 90 minutes. For tickets or more information please visit www.ccct@ccct.org.
