South Pacific

April 17 - June 28

On a lush tropical island during World War II, battles of the heart are center stage in the Goodspeed premiere of the soaring Rodgers & Hammerstein classic. Lovestruck nurse Nellie Forbush falls for a French planter. Lieutenant Joe Cable is drawn to a native girl. In an exotic world of risk and romance, prejudice clouds their potential paradise. Be swept away by twin love stories and a rapturous score that includes “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “Bali Ha’i” and more.

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan
Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel “Tales of the South Pacific” by James A. Michener
Choreographed by Ralph Perkins
Directed by Rob Ruggiero
