A poignant, off-beat dramedy with a kinetic pop-rock score, “Island Song” takes us through a year in the lives of five twenty-and-thirty-somethings sharing a city and the chain of surprising, poignant, and partially random connections that bring them into each other’s spheres at moments that become pivotal. As the city pulses around them, they all must work through their own complex relationships with ambition, distraction, and the search for connection.

“Island Song” is directed by Augustana senior Brycen Witt. When asked what audiences could expect from the production, Witt explained, “I can’t remember the last time I was involved in or even saw a show like this. Island Song really is a can’t miss event.”

The cast of “Island Song” features Augustana students AJ Weber, Ariela Policastro, Sarah Walton, Brian Heffernan, Julie Tarling, and Camryn MacLean.

The production team includes Lindsey Edwards, who serves as the assistant director and choreographer, music director Andrew Bradshaw, stage manager Synth Gonzalez, assistant stage manager John Flannery, lighting designer Riley Scranton, costume designer Amber Johnson, and props designer Zach Misner,

Tickets are $10, $7 for seniors, and $5 for faculty/staff/and non-Augustana students. Tickets are available for purchase by calling 309-794-7306, visiting augustana.edu/tickets, or at the door.
