Once on this Island Jr. Cast Interview with Maura Young!

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: Probably love, because the world would be a much better place with more love, right?

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 it is still important to society, because one, everything looks cooler with, singing, acting, and dancing. But really, don’t the people on stage light up immediately just because they’re preforming? And, hey, maybe the story we’re telling may change your whole input on life. Who knows?

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

A: When I got cast in this production, I was beyond excited, because I LOVE this musical, and the story stuck out to me so much. And again, maybe it will change your whole input on life!
