Photo Flash: First Look at SOUTH PACIFIC at Seattle Musical Theatre

Seattle Musical Theatre concludes its 38th season with SOUTH PACIFIC.

Considered one of the finest musicals ever written, Rodgers and Hammerstein's SOUTH PACIFIC is set in an island paradise during World War II and tells the sweeping saga of two parallel love stories that are threatened by the realities of war and prejudice. The songs, deeply ingrained in American culture, include the romantic "Some Enchanted Evening" and "Younger than Springtime," the spirited "There is Nothing Like a Dame" and the reflective "This Nearly Was Mine." Directed and choreographed by Phil Lacey. Music Direction by Brandon Peck.

The cast of SOUTH PACIFIC features local favorites Marissa Ryder as Nellie Forbush, John Carroll as Emile de Becque, Casey Raiha as Lt. Cable, Rachel Rene as Bloody Mary, Liz Oyama as Liat. The ensemble includes Morgan Bader, Meagan Castillo, Charlie Chittenden, Andrew Coopman, Caelan Creaser, Alex Gallo, Timothy Joyce, Christina Masson,Sean O'Bannon, Tony Pallozzi, Alana Peters, Nick Perry (also Associate Choreographer), and Sarah Mather.
