South Pa­cific mu­si­cal hits Town Hall stage

Loughborough Echo - - THE GUIDE -

RES­I­DENTS are in­vited to head over to Lough­bor­ough Town Hall this week and be swept away to the South Pa­cific with LAOS’ lat­est pro­duc­tion.

The award-win­ning Lough­bor­ough the­atre com­pany took to the stage for this first time last night (Tues­day) with Rodgers and Ham­mer­stein’s time­less mu­si­cal.

The clas­sic piece con­tains some of the most fa­mous songs in mu­si­cal the­atre in­clud­ing Some En­chanted Evening, There Is Noth­ing Like A Dame, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair and Bali Hai.

It is a won­der­fully old fash­ioned love story, un­der­pinned by the darker themes of war and racial prej­u­dice - and LAOS di­rec­tor James Nel­son has put a whole new slant on the pro­duc­tion, that starts even be­fore the over­ture.

The show runs un­til Satur­day, Septem­ber 16, at 7.30pm each night, plus a Satur­day mati­nee at 2.30pm.

Tick­ets are avail­able from com­pany mem­bers, the box of­fice on 01509 231914 and at www.lough­bor­oughtown­hall.co.uk

Pic­tured, from left to right, are Gemma Lan­ders, as Nel­lie For­bush, and Jonathan Pen­ton, as Emile De Becque. Im­age cour­tesy of Mark Chin­nery.
