BERNARDSVILLE NJ - Bernards High School will present “Once on This Island” for its spring musical from March 10 through March 12 at the Bernards High Performing Arts Center. 

From the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (“Seussical,” “Ragtime”), "Once on This Island" is a highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation that includes elements of the "Romeo and Juliet" story and elements of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Little Mermaid."  This story within a story tells the tale of a peasant girl on a tropical island that uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes. It is a story of life, pain, love, grief, faith, and hope.

This year’s spring musical will also feature seven young rising star students from Bedwell Elementary School.  The musical is appropriate for all ages.  Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for senior citizens and $15 for adults. Tickets are available at the PAC Box Office 30 minutes prior to each performance, subject to availability, and by going online to
