4 thoughts on “‘South Pacific’ – Stockton Stage Society, c1966

  1. The Merry Widow related picture is in fact a final rehearsal of Middlesbrough Operatic Society production with David Carter as Danilo and Eleanor Harris as the Widow. The Stockton show was a couple of years earlier with David playing opposite Marian Chandler. Two excellent Joy Beadell productions.
    In the centre of the South Pacific picture is leading lady Judy Wood, a brilliant Nellie Forbush. Judy was a scintillating actress and singer who was dearly loved by theatre-goers in the region who mourned her untimely death whilst still in her fifties.


  2. Third from the right on the front row is Joan Johnson (later Haggan). Her daughter Sue had the female lead, and her brother David the male lead. I forwarded the picture to her daughter Jude in Miami who confirmed these details.
