South Pacific – Tophat Miniature Stage Productions
June 3 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Toy theater maestro and trained opera singer David Worobec singlehandedly sings and performs this full length play with miniature figures from a fully loaded miniature theater designed by Polly Plimpton.
After the success of shows like Oklahoma! and Carousel, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote a show based on a book of short stories by James A. Michener called Tales Of The South Pacific. 2 romantic stories set against a war in the islands of the South Pacific in the 1940’s. Not only does the theme of war come up to play, but something else rears it’s ugly head for the world to see: racial prejudice. Rodgers and Hammerstein were a daring team to take on such controversial themes with their shows, and South Pacific is no exception. Even today, this show still feels relevant, and that really marks a true classic! From a pulitzer-prize winning novel, to a pulitzer-prize winning musical! With a lush score, scenes of comedy and tragedy, South Pacific is truly a classic not to be missed! Bali Hai is calling you….
