Arlington, VA (January 27, 2016) – Chalice Theater celebrates its 20th anniversary with Rodger and Hammerstein’s Pulitzer-prize winning musical, South Pacific. The story revolves around prejudice, war, and romance on an American military base during the Second World War. Chalice’s production, directed by Walter Ware III, casting director of Arlington’s Signature Theater, will explore these themes as they reside in the original script, and as they remain with us today. The show features such Broadway favorites as, “There is Nothing Like a Dame,” “Bali Ha’i,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” and “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught,” and an intergenerational cast (ages eight to eighty) of almost forty players.
After two weekends of sold-out performances, tickets remain for the final weekend shows on March 11, 12 and 13. Ticket prices are $20 for general admission, $15 for seniors and students. Tickets are available online at: http://chalicetheatresouthpacific.eventbrite.com
Chalice Theatre is located in the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington at 4444 Arlington Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia.
