Once on This Island general_BP website 


Buena Park Youth Theatre is proud to announce its upcoming spring production of Once on This Island


Based on a novel by Trinidadian-American writer Rosa Guy, this musical weaves together elements from Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid to explore the story of a young woman named Ti Moune who falls in love with a stranger from the other side of her island, their communities divided by history, money, and prejudice. What follows is a tale of tragic love, healing, and hope with some divine intervention from the local gods.

Buena Park Youth Theatre was created over 35 years ago, by former long time Cultural and Fine Arts Commissioner Ruth Walp, in response to public school budget cutbacks in the arts.  The city program funds two musical theatre productions that run for two week at Buena Park High School.  Friends of Buena Park Youth Theatre is a non-profit organization that was created over 20 years ago as a supplementary fund raising collective of parents whose children were (or are presently) participants of the Buena Park Youth Theatre program.  This is a ticketed performance.
