TORRINGTON — The Warner Stage Company will present the final performances of “Once” on the Warner Theatre Main Stage February 9 and 10 at 8 pm and February 11 at 2 pm. The Warner Stage Company is one of three community theatre companies across the USA granted the performance rights to ONCE and the first community theatre company to produce the show in 2018. Audiences are raving after the first weekend of performances.
“There is something magical and monumental happening on the stage of the Warner … I cannot say enough good things about the Warner Stage Company’s “Once.” It is touching, it is life-affirming, and it captures the mind and the soul from the first chord to the last beat. It is a beautiful expression of life, of love and of the way music can heal wounds, unite souls and elevate life. This will be a production that will stick with me for a very long time. Don’t miss the chance to see this gem of a show (and get there early, as the music starts even before the lights go down!)” - Joseph Harrison, BroadwayWorld
With a cast of incredible actor-musicians who accompany themselves on the soaring, gut-wrenching folk-rock score, “Once” is a uniquely theatrical experience that will move you to laughter, to tears, and to a deep understanding of the particular joy of joining together in song. Featuring all of the magical songs from the critically acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly,” this achingly beautiful, joyously uplifting show strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all.
