Four Fayetteville Actors Star in Classic Musical

Actors pictured from left to right are: Bill Barker (as Radio Operator Bob McCaffrey/Sailor), Lakeisha Askew ( as Bloody Mary) and Michael Brocki (as Luther Billis)

Four Fayetteville actors star through May 16 in a production considered by most critics to be among the greatest musicals of the 20th century.

South Pacific, at the Temple Theatre in Sanford, stars Cape Fear Regional Theatre regulars Ken Griggs, Bill Barker, and Chris Emano, along with longtime Fayetteville actor Michael Brocki.

Actors pictured from left to right are: Peggy Taphorn (Temple Theatre's Producing Artistic Director as Ensign Nellie Forbush) and Ken Griggs (as Emile de Becque).

Griggs stars as French landowner Emile de Becque, and Brocki portrays the irascible Luther Billis. Barker and Emano are featured throughout and shine in such classic numbers as “There Is Nothing Like a Dame.”

“I’m honored to be part of such a great cast and working with such wonderful friends,” said Griggs, whose recent productions at the Cape Fear Regional include The Full Monty and White Christmas.

Temple Artistic Director Peggy Taphorn, an award-winning actress, director, and choreographer, directs the production and also stars as Ensign Nellie Forbush.
