Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific has been touring the UK since last October. If you still haven't seen the production your last chance to see it will be in Woking before 21st July 2012 and Sheffield from 24th July until the 4th August 2012. Well over half a million people have seen the production so far!
Ex-Eastenders star Samantha Womack and Rebecca Thornhill are currently sharing the lead role of Nellie Forbush. Samantha will perform the role in Woking, with Rebecca appearing in Sheffield. They star opposite former Phantom of the Opera star, Matthew Camelle as Emile de Becque, Alex Fernsas Luther Billis, and Jodi Kimura as Bloody Mary, who played the role in the US. Daniel Koek plays the role of Lt Joe Cable in Woking and James Austen-Murray in Sheffield.
Set on a tropical island during World War II, this is the sweeping romantic story of two couples, threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an unfamiliar culture in wartime remains as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences.
