PACIFICA the Musical premieres 19 August, 2022 for a limited season.
Make history with us. Be part of the world premiere season of this extraordinary original large-scale musical produced in New Zealand for the world stage.
Featuring a catalogue of the biggest Kiwi pop songs ever, a story of love and legend set in the South Seas and a riot of colour and energy synonymous with the Pacific, this musical will feature an all-star cast of New Zealand’s finest entertainers.
The story begins a long time ago when a curse falls upon an island community and its descendants after a young boy loses a taonga. Fast forward to modern Auckland where a young man is told the dark secret about his island’s past. Leaving behind the girl he is falling in love with, he goes on a journey to discover the truth about his heritage, and to confront the challenge of his identity and his past. His life is changed forever.
In the tradition of smash-hit jukebox musicals like Mamma Mia!, We Will Rock You, Jersey Boys, and Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, PACIFICA THE MUSICAL’s score will take audiences on a magical journey, blending sounds and styles from around the Pacific, until what emerges is a cohesive sound of Aotearoa / New Zealand today.
Based on the music of - Hinewehi Mohi / Annie Crummer / Sola Rosa / Che Fu / Anika Moa / Holly Smith / King Kapesi / Nesian Mystik / Brooke Fraser / P-Money / Stan Walker / Six60, this musical has been 20 years in the making and designed for an international audience.
