April 12th marks the opening night for Cheltenham High School’s spring musical, “Once On This Island” a revival of the Broadway show. This will be the 55th annual production of the Cheltenham Music Theater.
“Once On This Island”, stars freshman, Casey Simone as Ti Moune, a peasant girl on a segregated island who falls in love with Daniel Beauxhomme, played by sophomore Immanuel Rimmer, whom she rescues from a car crash.
