Once Upon a Dream is an original dance musical with a fun, positive and meaningful message that will resonate with anyone who has a dream of making the world a better place to live.
Imara is a young girl who dreams of becoming a person of significance. Her once idyllic life is turned upside down when, at the age of 12, she loses her beloved mother to an untimely accident. Now she is faced with the overwhelming guilt that if she had been a more perfect person, she and her father wouldn’t be experiencing this horrible twist of fate.
Imara’s journey takes us inside of her crazy dreams as her classmates morph into outrageous snap-chat-like characters that each in their own way represents the inner aspects of her self. Her path is filled with everything the world has to offer; sometimes heartbreaking and frightening, often funny, these caricatures of her real-life friends and foes help Imara understand that she has been given everything she needs to make whatever dream she has a reality.
