The cast and crew from the Erie Playhouse production of "Once On This Island" visited Strong Vincent High School today to hold workshops for students in the school's theatre classes.

The cast and crew explained the process of transforming a book into a musical.

Actors performed songs and scenes from the show and students joined in.

The experience led to a dialogue on acceptance and tolerance, and gave the students some hands on time with a crew of experienced performers.

The workshops are being supported by a grant from Erie Arts and Culture, Erie Gains, Gannon University and the Erie Playhouse.
