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 want to control love. If you could control love, you would be able to turn the world into a beautiful, peaceful and loving place. Everyone would care for each other and help each other, and there would be no more wars or fighting and we would have kindness, love and peace throughout the world.
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: I think since the beginning of time people have acted out stories for many different reasons. They were entertaining, but they also taught many valuable lessons. It was easier to understand and remember the lessons and stories passed down through families and villages when they were acted out. I think that is still very true today.
Q: Why are you most excited about sharing this particular story with your community?
A: I am very excited about sharing this story because there are problems the characters face on their island that we are facing in our community today and we can learn from this story how to be and how not to be.
