    South Pacific

    Presented by at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts

    May 11 - May 13, 2012


    South Pacific

    This breathtaking new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC is based on the 2008 Tony Award® winning Lincoln Center Theater production, directed by Bartlett Sher. Based on James Michener’s Pulitzer Prize winning book Tales of the South Pacific, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan.

    Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples — US Navy nurse, Nellie Forbush and French plantation owner, Emile de Becque, along with Navy airman, Joe Cable, and a young local native girl, Liat. The story line examines how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. Considered by many the finest musical ever written, the score’s songs include such classics as Some Enchanted Evening, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, Younger Than Springtime, Bali Ha’i, There is Nothin’ Like A Dame, This Nearly Was Mine and A Wonderful Guy.
