Dancap’s inaugural Summer Broadway Series at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts will feature a new production of Boublil and Schönberg's MISS SAIGON, presented in association with Pittsburgh CLO, from July 9 to August 1, 2010, followed by the Tony Award®-winning Lincoln Center Theater Production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC, from August 12 to September 5, 2010.

Tickets are available for both productions beginning Saturday, April 10 at 10am with individual ticket prices starting at $28. You can purchase tickets by calling 416-644-3665 or to order online at www.dancaptickets.com.  Tickets are also available in person at the Four Seasons Centre Box Office at 145 Queen Street West (at University Ave.), Monday to Saturday, 11am-6pm

“Dancap is thrilled to present a Summer Broadway Series at this world-class theatre in the heart of downtown Toronto,” said Aubrey Dan, President of Dancap Productions Inc. “We are very much looking forward to having audiences experience theatrical productions of the highest calibre in this magnificent opera house.  I believe the venue’s wonderful acoustics and great sightlines will raise the musical theatre experience to unprecedented levels of enjoyment for our customers. If you haven't yet experienced a performance in this incredible theatre, now is the time!”

Set in 1975 during the final days of the Vietnam war, and loosely based on Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly, MISS SAIGON tells a similarly tragic tale of a doomed romance involving an American GI and a Vietnamese bar girl. Separated during the fall of Saigon, their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years end in tragedy for the young woman and only a fighting chance for her son.

Based on James Michener’s Pulitzer Prize winning book Tales of the South Pacific, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC is set in an island paradise during World War II where two parallel love stories bloom amidst the trappings of war, but are then threatened by the dangers of prejudice. A stunning reinvention produced by Lincoln Center Theater, SOUTH PACIFIC swept the 2008 Tony Awards®, winning seven honors including Best Musical Revival and Best Director for Bartlett Sher. The show's score includes such classic songs as, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, There is Nothin’ Like A Dame, and Some Enchanted Evening.

The National Tour cast of SOUTH PACIFIC will be led by Welsh-born and Toronto-based Jason Howard as Emile de Becque. Howard developed much of his classical repertoire with the Edmonton Opera where he recently portrayed the Dutchman in Wagner's Die Fliegende Holländer. He has also been performing with the Hamilton Opera since 1994 singing such roles as the Count in Le nozze di Figaro and Escamillo in Carmen.
