ABOUT SOUTH PACIFIC:
Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two couples in love are both threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. South Pacific is Rogers and Hammerstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic musical which garnered 10 Tony awards, 9 Donaldson Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
South Pacific is projected to have a cast of about 20 to 30. We are looking for cast members who "appear" to be in the age range of 18 to 60+. There are also two children, ages 6 to 10.
The roles of EMILE DE BECQUE and BLOODY MARY have been cast.
ENSIGN NELLIE FORBUSH: Female Caucasian, 20s-40; an optimistic and somewhat naive Navy Nurse from Little Rock, Arkansas, who falls in love with French planter Emile de Becque; must have good comic and dramatic acting skills; strong Mezzo.
LT. JOE CABLE: Male Caucasian, 20s to 30; a young serious officer who falls in love with Liat. Must be believable as a tough Marine, with a soaring tenor voice.
LUTHER BILLIS: Male, 30+; Sailor, wheeler dealer/entrepreneur and friend to all... except maybe the officers! Loves the ladies; strong character actor/singer needed.
CAPT. BRACKETT, USN: Male 40-60; a pompous but good-hearted take-charge Officer; non-singing role.
CMDR. HARBESON, USN: Male 35-50; Brackett's second-in-command and a bit of a jerk; non-singing role.
CHIEF JANET COLBERT: Female Caucasian, older than Nellie; top ranked officer among the nurses and Nellie's confidante; no-nonsense but warm and witty; some solo vocal lines/ensemble.
LIAT: Female 18-25, heartbreakingly delicate; moves beautifully; non-singing role.
STEWPOT: Male, 25+; Billis' Sailor side-kick; comic actor with a strong Tenor.
PROFESSOR: Male, 25+; another of Billis' boys; studious character man; strong vocals.
JEROME and NGANA: Boy and Girl, ages 6-10; Emile's children with his deceased Islander wife; small but important roles; strong singers/dancers.
ENSEMBLE: 8-10 Military Nurses and 8-10 Military Men.
