Highlights from the musical South Pacific

Watch on RML’s YouTube channel

Premier: RML’s YouTube channel on Wednesday, September 2 at 7PM.

The show must go online!

Listen to outstanding studio performances by professional actors/singers Kristal Daniels and Steven Pollack.We’ll hear selections from this classic show based on James Michener’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book Tales of the South Pacific. The show runs about 50 minutes.

You will remember Steve if you watched the podcast on the Red Rose Girls or attended the live event in the Winsor Room. I remember when Steve was singing Sondheim in the Winsor Room and will never forget that. I am so glad we got in touch again as presenting virtual events is challenging and we are helping one another here.
