Bethlehem Central Middle School will present Once on This Island, Jr. for four performances, January 26-28.
Peppered with catchy songs and dances, the musical tells the story of an island population starkly divided by social class, but ultimately brought together by the powers of love and healing of an orphaned peasant girl.
More than 75 students will perform on stage, assisted by another 75 who will work behind the scenes helping with costumes, hair and makeup, props and sets. The show is directed by BCHS teacher and choir director Jason Dashew and Lindsay Dashew, who is a seasoned actress and arts educator. Dozens of parents have also contributed countless hours to assisting with the show’s production.
Performances are as follows:
- Thursday, January 26, 7 p.m.
- Friday, January 27, 7 p.m.
- Saturday, January 28, 2 p.m.
