Once - 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. Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, "Once" features an ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage.

To best demonstrate our commitment to inclusion in our community, Horizon Theatre encourage ALL actors to audition for ANY role which they feel they can fully embody.
