Drama Club plans to present ‘Once on This Island’ in June


The Edison Theater

AMANI — The Drama Club plans to perform a play called “Once on This Island.”

The director, Mr. Summers, is working with Amani scholars to put on the production.

“The general theme of this play is that love can be an all-conquering thing,” said Mr. Summers. “The genre of this play is musical theater and folktale. The play comes from the Caribbean.”

Mr. Garcia will be doing the music. The cast is posted on the upper school “What’s the Tea?” board.

The show will be staged June 4, 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. The genres of music in the production are calypso, clave, reggae, soka and dancehall.

Each member of the cast has their own script.

“The students are very enthusiastic,” said Mr. Garcia. “I encourage them to reread the scripts and music at home.”
