EVERETT — A Broadway-style musical with a big cast and an orchestra is such a resource-stretcher they only attempt it every other year at Cascade High School.
Now’s that moment.
The public is invited to attend performances of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic “South Pacific” scheduled for 7:30 p.m. May 10, 11 and 12 at the Cascade High School Theater, 801 E. Casino Road.
The show includes a cast of 40 students and an orchestra of 45, including some professional musicians.
“We’ve been building scenery since February, and feel the show will look as beautiful as it will sound,” said drama director and teacher Jeff Woolf.
The first performance was held last weekend.
“South Pacific” is about an American nurse stationed at a U.S. Naval base during World War II. She falls in love with an expatriate French plantation owner but complications develop when she learns about his mixed-race children.
The musical received the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1950.
Tickets cost $14 for elevated seats and $10 for floor seats. Tickets for seniors, students and children are less.
