Posing on the beach in 1961 are members of the cast of South Pacific.

Featuring members of the South Shields Amateur Operatic Society, they show the men, women and boys and girls who entertained audiences over the years with their renditions of a whole host of popular stage shows, such as South Pacific and Chicago.

It’s easy to understand how the songs, the music, the drama and the thrill of seeing a lavish production on their doorstep, attracted audiences in their droves.

Having fun, in a scene from Chicago in 1984.
