Derry News

---- — LONDONDERRY — Londonderry Middle School students played to packed houses last weekend when the Drama Club presented the musical “Once on This Island.”

The show cast students in the roles of peasants, goddesses and gods, and showcased the young talent in singing, dancing and more dramatic character roles.

The show was a one-act musical that features four gods keeping watch over a Caribbean island, the adventures of an orphaned peasant girl that lands there, and her eventual love and death decisions.

“Once On This Island” is based on the novel “My Love, My Love” by Rosa Guy.
