Westchester Broadway Theatre presents SOUTH PACIFIC, with Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and Book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan.

BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Rodgers and Hammerstein's award-winning South Pacific is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book Tales of the South Pacific by James A. Michener. The musical is set on an island paradise during World War II and tells two parallel love stories against the dangers of prejudice and war and the importance of valuing diversity. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949.
