Oswestry Musical Theatre Company are proud to present their April 2014 show – South Pacific.

This Rogers and Hammerstein classic is packed full of well-known and popular songs, including:

  • Some Enchanted Evening
  • Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair
  • Nothing Like a Dame
  • Happy Talk

This tale of racial relations based on an  island somewhere in the South Pacific, tells the story of Nellie, an American nurse who falls in love with a Frenchman, Emile, a plantation owner with a history that she may not want to know about.  Along the way we learn about US Navy secret missions, see a Thanksgiving show (army style) and witness a young soldier fall in love with a young Tonkinese girl.

The show will be on at the Marches School, Oswestry from April 22nd – 26th, with performances starting at 7:30pm.  Tickets will be available from Christian’s the jewelers on Bailey Street in central Oswestry (though aren’t on sale yet!).

The coming weekend, the 12th and 13th of October, there shall be a workshop on Saturday from 2pm to roughly 6pm, to go through the music and prepare for auditions.

Then on Sunday we shall be holding auditions. The exact times of auditions for each part will be announced on Saturday.

Attendance at the workshop isn’t mandatory but should give you a clearer understanding of what’s expected from your part.

If you’d like to audition for a part but can’t or don’t want to attend the workshop, please let one of the directors know (Mark Lord, Janet Williams, Rob Sharp or Chris Smith), or email info@omtc.info and we will pass the message along.

Apologies for the short notice.
