Toronto (November, 2009) –Dancap Productions Inc. announced today that the company will present the critically-acclaimed, 2008 Tony Award®-winning, Lincoln Center Theater production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC as part of its summer season of musicals at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in 2010.

Dancap Productions President, Aubrey Dan stated, “The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts is one of the world’s great venues for opera and dance - and now, I am proud to say, for the world’s finest musical theatre as well. Dancap is thrilled to have acquired this stunning production of South Pacific for our inaugural summer series downtown at the Four Seasons Centre.” 

Dancap Presents The Lincoln Center Theater production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC, August 12 to September 5, 2010. 

Based on James 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, a book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan and is directed by 2008 Tony Award®-winner Bartlett Sher. 

"The word "perfection" is the only way to describe this incredible production."

     – Richard Ouzounian, The Toronto Star

This production swept the 2008 Tony Awards®, winning seven honours including Best Musical Revival and Best Director for Bartlett Sher. Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and their own prejudices. The beloved score includes such popular songs as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” “This Nearly Was Mine” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.”

“I know we’re not supposed to expect perfection in this imperfect world, but I’m darned if I can find one serious flaw in this production.” 
     –    Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“The most operatic of mid-20th century musicals, SOUTH PACIFIC will fill the Four Seasons Centre with its iconic, beautifully crafted songs and sumptuous visual appeal. I believe that for those who love Broadway musicals, the experience in this wonderful hall, built to showcase the human voice, will be nothing short of transformative," added Mr. Dan.

Dancap expects to announce more programming in the coming months.
