BWW Photo Exclusive: Behind the Curtain with SOUTH PACIFIC at STAGES St. Louis

One of the most powerful musicals of all time, South Pacific triumphantly returns to STAGES for the first time in 25 years. Running September 8th through October 8th at the Robert G. Reim Theatre in Kirkwood, join STAGES for a timeless tale in the South Pacific and take a peak backstage with these exclusive photos to see how the cast enjoys their time behind the scenes of Bali Ha'i!

Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book, Tales of the South Pacific, by James Michener, this critically acclaimed musical adaptation proved to be an immediate Broadway success for Rodgers and Hammerstein in 1949. A true classic for the ages, South Pacific overflows with some of the finest music ever written for the American stage, spinning a dangerously romantic tale while also candidly exploring themes of racism, tolerance, and inclusion. Following the struggles faced by young American soldiers and nurses stationed on a tropical naval base during the Second World War, STAGES' patrons will be moved by a breathtaking saga blooming with passion and romance and a spectacularly unrivaled score.

This show-stopping cast stars Broadway Actor Michael Halling as Emile de Becque, St. Louis Actress Leah Berry as Ensign Nellie Forbush, Broadway Actor Matthew Hydzik as Lt. Joseph Cable, New York Actor Mark DiConzo as Luther Billis, and New York Actress Joanne Javien as Bloody Mary.

The creative team for the production includes: Michael Hamilton (Direction), Ellen Isom (Choreography), Lisa Campbell Albert (Musical Direction), James Wolk (Scenic Design), Garth Dunbar (Costume Design), Sean M. Savoie (Lighting Design), Stuart M. Elmore (Orchestral Design).
