The Academy Center of the Arts and Innovative Wireless Technologies present the 2018 Encore Youth Theatre production of Once on This Island this July!   About Once on this Island: Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune’s life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel’s heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.   Tickets: Youth General Seating: $9 Adult General Seating: $17 All Ages Sand Seats*: $20   *Sand Seats are located in the center of the seating area, around the border of the stage. Please note that audience members seated in this area will be seated in chairs in the sand.  …
