The Spot Young Company is a tuition-free program open to all high school students in the Wood River Valley. Students specialize in performance and technical theater training. Their work culminates in a full production under the guidance and mentorship of The Spot Cr3w.
The 2021 production of ONCE marks the first LIVE Spot Young Co. show since Winter 2019. Join us in celebrating the return of live theater with these amazingly talented young performers.
ONCE is the story of a guy who gave up on love and music, and the girl who inspired him to dream again. On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story, underscored by emotionally charged music.
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. A show like that only comes around Once.
