One of the world's most treasured musicals, SOUTH PACIFIC, will make a 24 venue tour of New Zealand in September in October.
Brought to you by the producer of Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story, Oklahoma! and The Pirates of Penzance, this beautiful musical will start its own epic journey in Kerikeri in the far north and work its way to Invercargill in the far south, transporting audiences to a Rodgers and Hammerstein war-time romance.
The 18-strong cast will star former Shortland Street actress Geraldine Brophy, much-loved baritone Tim Beveridge, Tizane McEvoy who starred as Maria Elena in Buddy and Bronwyn Turei from Go Girls.
The original Broadway production enjoyed immense critical and box-office success, became the second-longest Broadway musical to that point (behind Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!), and has remained popular ever since.
Several of its songs, including "Bali Ha'i", "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outs My Hair", "Some Enchanted Evening", "There Is Nothing Like as Dame", "Happy Talk", "Younger Than Springtime" and "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy", have become popular standards.
