Come and join us as for Island Song.

Island Song takes us through a year in the lives of 11 twenty-and-thirty-somethings sharing a city and the chain of surprising, meaningful, and partially random connections that bring them into each other’s spheres at moments that become pivotal.

As the city pulses around them, they each work through their own complex relationships with ambition, distraction, and the search for connection.

I am a huge Pink fan. She is an amazing talent with an amazing voice. Love this video of her and her daughter singing A Million Dreams 💜

Adorable!

I spy our vocal group and theater student Raegan showing a little extra kindness to those who help keep our community safe! Way to go sweet girl! We are so proud of you!

11-year-old Raegan Creppon, a Catoctin Elementary student stopped by Leesburg police headquarters to drop off two baskets filled with goodies. Reagan wanted to do a random act of kindness and chose her community’s guardians! We are immensely thankful for her kindness and baskets!

A poignant, off-beat dramedy with a kinetic pop-rock score (boasting 7 MAC-nominated songs), 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.
