Set in an island paradise during World War II, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” tells two parallel love stories, threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. One of the famous duo’s most popular shows, “South Pacific” features such songs as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “There’s Nothin’ Like a Dame,” and “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair.”
Parts are available for men and women, ages 13 and older. To audition, prepare 16-32 bars of a song with piano accompaniment or acapella. No monologue is required, materials will be provided at auditions. There is a dance portion of the auditions, so clothes and shoes that allow movement are necessary.
