About the Film

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a group of New York Broadway artists come down to New Orleans to make a change. Reopening the doors of the storm-damaged St Mark’s Community Center, they hold auditions for the musical “Once On This Island” and stage the show with thirteen kids from the community. A feature documentary, “After the Storm,” captures the lives of the kids and crew as they turn a gym into a theater, come together as a company, and create hope and purpose in the midst of devastation and despair.
