Once on this Island

FHS Musical Theatre Club delivered two amazing performances of their latest production ‘Once on this Island’ to packed Studio audiences last Friday and Saturday.  The students from across Years 7-11 have been very busy over recent weeks creating this show which is comprised of one act sung through performance based on the book ‘My love my love’ by Rosa Guy. It tells the story of the heroine, Ti Moune, an orphan peasant girl who falls in love with a man above her class. Dramatic themes of class distinction, racial prejudice, death, promises and children pursuing their dreams, combine to create this magical tale.  The quality of the performances students delivered was exceptional.  Congratulations to all the staff and students involved and we are already looking forward to the next production!
