For The Review, Tidings
Clackamas Repertory Theatre will present Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific," one of America's favorite musicals, Aug. 1-25 at the Osterman Theatre at Clackamas Community College campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Sunday and at 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets may be purchased at clackamasrep.org or by calling 503-594-6047.
Spectacular scenery will transport audiences to a remote South Pacific island of beauty and intrigue, where they will enjoy performances by Clackamas Rep's talented cast of more than 30 and a 10-piece band. The cast will perform classics "Some Enchanted Evening," "This Nearly Was Mine," "There's Nothing Like a Dame," "Bali Hai," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair" and more.
Co-directed by Jayne Stevens and Wesley Robert Hanson, the cast includes a wide variety of talent and features Michael Sharon, a regional Equity actor who has worked for Portland Center Stage, Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, as the cultured Frenchman Emile de Bec. Other cast members include Kelly Sina as Nellie, Matthew Brown as Cable and Kelsey Hoeffel as Bloody Mary.
To enhance the audience experience, Clackamas Rep will provide a preshow lecture on World War II and U.S./Japan relations one hour before each performance by Jackie Flowers, a U.S. history professor at Clackamas Community College, and actor/director talkbacks following the Friday evening performances on Aug. 9, 16 and 23.
