GO totally tropical when the hit Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific comes to Leeds in June.

After a hugely successful seven-week season playing to packed houses at London’s Barbican Theatre, this lavish production runs at the Leeds Grand Theatre from June 26 until July 7.

The cast for Leeds will include Matthew Cammelle as Emile de Becque, Daniel Koek as Lieut Joe Cable and Alex Ferns as Luther Billis.

Set on a tropical island during World War II, the sweeping romantic story of two couples threatened by the realities of war is considered one of the finest musicals ever written.

Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an unfamiliar culture in wartime remains as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences.

Featuring a cast of 40 and a live orchestra of 18, the score includes such fantastic and memorable songs such as Some Enchanted Evening, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair, Happy Talk and There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.

Tickets for South Pacific cost £21-£43.50 and are available online at www.leedsgrandtheatre.com or by calling the box office on 0844 848 2705.
