South Pacific national tour cast member Peter Rini, who portrays Commander William Harbison, is ready to answer the call of duty on stage and off.


On Feb. 8, during the Tony Award-winning musical's Seattle engagement, Rini witnessed a hit-and-run accident, in which a driver of a stolen van struck two parked cars and attempted to flee on foot. The actor tackled the suspect and subdued him until authorities arrived.

The Seattle police department will honor Rini on Feb. 17 in a special ceremony at the Seattle police headquarters where he will be presented with the Citizen’s Recognition Award.
