Our Spring Mainstage will be SOUTH PACIFIC!

This Pulitzer Prize winning Rodgers and Hammerstein classic is one audition you do not want to miss! If you are looking for a show with a story that will challenge you as an actor, look no further than SOUTH PACIFIC. Through this incredible musical, performers will be pushed to dig deep as actors and confront this hauntingly beautiful story of racism and war in the South Pacific.

Kidz Theater produces many contemporary musicals, but it's the Standard musicals with their near perfect scripts and scores that really challenge even the most skilled Kidz Theater performers!
