Set against the dramatic background of an idyllic South Pacific island during World War two, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific intertwines the themes of love, duty, and prejudice to create a story that is funny, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. Based on the anecdotes of a real-life U.S. Navy commander who was stationed on an island, the musical follows two inter-cultural love stories: Nellie Forbush, a head-strong nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile de Becque, a French plantation owner on the island who has two children from his late Polynesian wife. At the same time, U.S. Lieutenant Joseph Cable falls for a beautiful island native named Liat. Both Americans find themselves struggling to reconcile their own cultural prejudices with their amorous feelings, all the while under the dark cloud of a war that is coming ever closer to their island paradise.
So… join us as we prepare to take a trip to a South Pacific paradise
