continued “I am always surprised, and I guess I shouldn’t be anymore,” Mason said. “I come in each year expecting to see children’s theater and it becomes actual theater each time. Every year I come in and expect a certain level of greatness and each year they seem to exceed it.”
Mason said that the musical is based on the story of an island girl who falls in love with a rich boy.
“It is the power of love over the power of death,” he said. “There are many mythical themes as well based on island gods.”
