Once on this Island Jr. Cast Interview with Matthew Brooks!

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’d love to control water, just because I love the rain so much. It’s just so relaxing and soothing!

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 so important because the arts is a place for those to escape and be themselves.

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

A: I’m most excited about the sharing the amazing story Once on this Island has to offer. I also can’t wait to play Tonton, who is drastically different from characters I have played before.

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