Lynn Canal Community Players is seeking actors, singers and musicians for a fall performance of the musical “South Pacific.”

Directors are Mark and Tod Sebens, two veterans of the Haines theater troupe. The play would be staged Oct. 1-3. More than 30 cast and crew are needed.

“Mark wanted to do it. He saw the show in a small town our size in the Lower 48. They did a good job with it and it really inspired him,” said Annette Smith, secretary-treasurer of LCCP.

Debra Schnabel is heading up the music for the show, Smith said. “We’d like to put an orchestra together.”

“South Pacific” is a romance about sailors and nurses stationed on remote islands during World War II. The play was an amalgam of stories from James Michener’s 1946 book “Tales of the South Pacific.”

It was a smash hit that became a Broadway musical in 1949 and a film in 1958. It has since been performed worldwide, including various adaptations. Classic tunes from it include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Bali Ha’i,” “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair” and “There is Nothing Like a Dame.”

Smith said she’s excited for the group to stage another musical, as the last one, “The Music Man,” was about a half-dozen years ago.

“There are lots of famous tunes we’ll be singing and there are good character parts including ensign Nellie Forbush, sailor Luther Billis and ‘Bloody Mary,’ the Tonkinese trader,” Smith said.

There are only two roles for children, suitable for youths between ages 7-10.

Auditions are 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 9 and Tuesday, Aug. 10 at Haines Assisted Living.
