South Pacific

A major revival of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific on tour in the UK from August 2007.

On a small South Pacific island, Nellie Forbush, a US Navy nurse, falls for a mysterious French planter whose life-style could not be more different from the conservatism of her own Arkansas background. Meanwhile, Lt Joe Cable arrives to carry out a top-secret spying mission against the Japanese fleet from behind enemy lines. He is befriended by a Tonkinese trader, Bloody Mary, and soon becomes involved with her beautiful young daughter...

Starring Helena Blackman as 'Nellie Forbush' and Dave Willetts as 'Emile de Becque'. Helena Blackman was a runner-up in BBC1's How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? last year. Dave Willetts' many West End starring roles include Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Cats, Ragtime and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Casting subject to change.
