TORRINGTON — The Warner Stage Company will present the romantic musical, “Once,” on the Warner Theatre Main Stage, Feb. 3-11.
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.
You know the story: Guy meets Girl. But in ONCE, an unconventional and romantic musical based on the award-winning 2006 film, what follows is not a traditional love story. Guy, a heartbroken musician busking for coins on the streets of Dublin, meets Girl, a Czech immigrant with a complicated history and a broken vacuum cleaner.
Despite their differences, Guy and Girl find common ground, a shared language, and genuine love in creating music together. 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.
“Once” contains adult language. The production is directed and choreographed by Sharon A. Wilcox with music direction by Dan Ringuette. The cast of “Once” features actor/musicians Noel Roberge (Guy), Kelly White (Girl), KC Beauregard, Michelle Begley, Hal Chernoff, Jen Colella, Darrell Cookman, Tom Denihan, Nate Dobas, Mark Garthwait, Michael O’Hazo, Priscilla Squires, Avery Swanson. Performances are Feb. 3, 9 and 10 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 4 at 11 at 2 p.m.
“Once” is sponsored by Thomaston Savings Bank.
