"Once on This Island"
Islander Youth Theater's production of Once on This Island is funded by a generous contribution from Ron and Betsy Vernetti in memory of their son, John Vernetti. They are elated with the first year of this program and are excited to see the show! Last semester, IYT joined with Director, Laura Bueno, owner of Playground Players Productions to produce the Wizard of Oz. The success of that show helped to double the enrollment for this semester's All Schools Musical of Once on This Island, with children from all over San Diego County participating. Laura Bueno has directed and choreographed several youth theater productions throughout San Diego. She has performed with the San Diego Opera chorus for 13 years and has performed with musical theater companies throughout San Diego County in numerous roles, as well as in Missouri where she completed her BS in Music Education at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Once on This Island is a beautiful story of love overcoming obstacles and prejudice and gives us all a lesson by which to live. With one performance only, you won't want to miss it! Performance on June 9th at 5:30pm at Coronado High School.
