Once on this Island Jr. Cast Interview with Ryan Mesler!

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 earth because love and death are two extremely powerful things that I wouldn’t be able to handle. Earth is strong, yet not overwhelming.

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: The arts are important to society simply because anyone can see it, anyone can do it, and everyone can enjoy it. The arts don’t only provide entertainment, but also help express ideas and emotions.

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

A: This story is different than the average tale. The story is unusual and quite fascinating, making it a phenomenal musical and amazing experience in general.
