The home of musicals, The Civic, Auckland, will host the world premiere of PACIFICA THE MUSICAL on August 19, 2022. PACIFICA THE MUSICAL is an original, large-scale production featuring a catalogue of the biggest Kiwi songs from the last three decades; a story of love and legend set in the South Seas and a riot of colour and energy synonymous with the Pacific.
With hits from artists including Hinewehi Mohi, Annie Crummer, Sola Rosa, Che Fu, Anika Moa, Hollie Smith, King Kapisi, Nesian Mystik, Brooke Fraser, P-Money, Stan Walker and Six60, this musical has been 20 years in the making and designed for a worldwide international audience.
PACIFICA THE MUSICAL features an extraordinary cast of young vocalists and dancers and the best exponents of stagecraft, with vocal direction and cameo performance from the Lion King’s Nick Afoa, musical direction from Stan Walker and Teeks’ MD, Jacob Nansen; and dazzling Pacific inspired costumes by Eithne Curran. Choreography will be by Hadleigh Pouesi, whose Sweet & Sour crew brought back New Zealand’s first gold medal from the World Hip Hop Championships.
