The Red Octopus Theatre Company announces the cast of its April show, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific.” This popular musical was first produced on Broadway in 1949, and it has remained an important part of American musical theater. The themes of love, war, and prejudice continue to resonate today.

The Newport production, directed by Bo Harrington, features Darcy Hogan as Nellie Forbush, the ‘cock-eyed optimist,’ with her love interest, Emile, being played by Pete Theodore. The star-crossed lovers, Lt. Cable and Liat, are played by Stuart Clausen and Danielle Cramer. Supporting cast includes Karlia Bertness as Bloody Mary, with Kenna Bertness as her assistant, and C. Christopher Hart as Luther Billis. Jayla Fletcher, Kody Bertness, and Indigo Stone play Emile’s children.
