Once on this Island Jr. Cast Interview with Shykira Allen!

Q: If you could control either love, death, water, or earth like the gods in the show, which one would you choose and why?

A: I would control love because I feel like the world needs more of it.

Q:  "Why We Tell the Story" is just one of the amazing songs in Once on this Island! Why do you think telling a story through the arts is still important to society? 

A: Telling a story through the arts is important because people use art as an escape and also as something to provoke thought. We can give people a glimmer of hope and make them smile while also making them realize problems and hopefully inspire them to try to fix them.

Q: Why are you most excited about sharing this particular story with your community? 

A: I'm excited to share this story with my community because I believe that it is about defying odds and following your heart even when your told not to.

Mark your calendars to join us for a performance Sept. 13-23!
