About South Pacific

Chichester Festival Theatre’s critically acclaimed, landmark production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s *South Pacific* transfers to Sadler’s Wells this summer for a strictly limited season.

This powerful love story, set on a South Pacific island during World War ll, is brought thrillingly to life in an epic new five-star production directed by Chichester Festival Theatre’s Artistic Director Daniel Evans. A sensational cast of over thirty is led by the leads from the Chichester Festival Theatre production, including Julian Ovenden, Gina Beck, Rob Houchen, Joanna Ampil and Sera Maehara. Featuring a full orchestra, this ravishing musical is set to be the must-see theatrical event of the year.

Boasting one of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most memorable scores, this much-loved Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical features songs such as "I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair" and "Bali Ha’i".
