"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."

We are proud to present our first LIVE Spot Young Company Show since 2019. We have assembled an incredibly talented group of Wood River Valley high school students and created some musical theater magic at 220 Lewis Street. 


 The Spot's Young Company is a tuition-free project, featuring Wood River Valley students (grades 9-12) led by program alumni and professional mentors.  The Spot Young Co. aims to educate and empower young artists through collaboration and commitment on stage and behind the scenes.
