Aaron Ramey Joins Cast of
RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S SOUTH PACIFIC
as Lieutenant Joseph Cable
Performances Begin Tonight at the Toronto Centre for the Arts


Aaron Ramey, familiar to Toronto and Dancap audiences from his performance of Chris in last summer’s Miss Saigon, will return to Toronto in the role of Lieutenant Joseph Cable in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC, being presented at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.

Direct from Washington’s much-lauded Arena Stage production of Oklahoma, where Richard Ouzounian of the Toronto Star called Aaron Ramey’s Jud Fry “a real man, attractive and compelling, whose inner darkness is revealed gradually, to maximum effect.”

Ramey also received stellar reviews last summer where his performance of Chris was called “powerful” by the Toronto Sun and The Hamilton Spectator beamed “Aaron Ramey sings with a voice that throbs with intensity.”  Eye Weekly proclaimed “Aaron Ramey has a lovely tenor voice that he uses to fine effect.”

Ramey’s Broadway credits include Curtains, Young Frankenstein, Thoroughly Modern Millie; with National tours of Sweet Charity and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

This lavish Lincoln Center Theater Production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC swept the 2008 Tony Awards®, winning seven including Best Musical Revival and Best Director for Bartlett Sher. Based on James A. Michener’s Pulitzer Prize winning book Tales of the South Pacific, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan.  Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories bloom amidst the trappings of war and prejudice. 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.”
