The musical tells the story of "Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death. "

Walsh student Hannah Wade has the role of Ti Moune with Max Connor as Daniel.
