South Pacific at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse

We have dress rehearsal for South Pacific tonight at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse.

It is a classic musical with some exceptionally strong leads and voices. If you like "There is Nothing Like a Dame", "Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair", "Some Enchanted Evening" or any number of the Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical numbers then here is your chance to hear a 24 piece orchestra play the score and these actors sing the songs.

I was just able to squeak this show into my schedule so I was able to take on the role of Captain Bracket.

My dad, who past away a long while back, was in the military for 22 years. When I put on the costume I immediately freaked myself out by how much I looked like what I remember him to have looked like when I was a kid. I snapped a phone photo and sent it out to my sisters who in turn were given a bit of a jolt.

The show opens this Friday and runs four weeks.

David and I are interested in seeing the play. Are there any discount tickets, student nights, or matinees (I'm broke)?

Besides last nights dress rehearsal, which isn't a show but is viewable by the public, the two discounts I am aware of are:

“Club Night”: For Opening Saturday performances ONLY.
Individual tickets for any member of a civic organization (i.e., Elks, Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, etc.) are available for the group rate price of $21!

Enter promo code clubnight at the TMP web site to ensure the correct price.

“Date Night”: For Second Saturday performances ONLY.
Two tickets for $30, patrons 30 years of age or younger, bringing a date to the theater!
