Bayou City Theatrics presents South Pacific
With a unique approach to one of Broadway's most cherished musicals, Bayou City Theatrics delivers yet another theatrical work that has stood the test of time. The BCT 2015 Spring Season continues with the treasured work by Rodgers and Hammerstein, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Tales of the South Pacific.
Centered on Nellie Forbush (Erica Bundy), an American nurse stationed on a precarious island in the midst of the Second World War, South Pacific raises questions about cultural perspective, upbringing and romance. She has become enchanted with French planter Emile de Becque (Tyler Galindo) and is ravaged with inner turmoil as she fights against true love in an attempt to keep her roots intact and her feet on the ground. Young Lieutenant Joe Cable (Colton Berry), newly reporting for duty, is persuaded to journey to the mysterious island of Bali Ha'i by Bloody Mary (Aggie Balka) and compassionate sailor, Luther Billis (Jayson Kolbicz).
As the war rages on and tensions rise, the complications they face billow and break like the waves against the shore of the tiny island.
