ONE NIGHT ONLY! Join us for Once on This Island at The Grand Opera House! This fully-staged production will feature our talented Summer Camp students, ages 10-18, with a full orchestra. Enjoy Caribbean rhythms and iconic Broadway tunes while supporting Wilmington youth.


Once on a golden and verdant Caribbean island, a little girl is rescued from a disastrous storm by four gods—Asaka, Mother of the Earth; Agwé, god of Water; Erzulie, goddess of Love; and Papa Ge, demon of Death. So starts the myth told in this breathtaking story of Black joy and sorrow, the aftermath of colonization and isolation, and the triumph of love against all forces. Told with Caribbean rhythms and instruments, this Tony Award–winning musical is a testament that a beautiful story simply told has the power to inspire and heal all.


The Choir School of Delaware’s annual Musical Theater Summer Camp connects Wilmington youth to enriching, affordable arts education opportunities while combatting summer learning loss. Camp is offered at no cost to families. Programming includes a fully-staged musical production of Once On This Island, training in theater, music, and dance, academic instruction from professional educators, swimming, field trips to museums, and more!
