A new production of Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein’s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical SOUTH PACIFIC is making its Jacksonville debut at the Times-Union Center’s Moran Theater from October 11 to October 16, 2011 for 8 performances only!
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; & Navy Airman Joe Cable and a young local native girl by the name of Liat. The story tells of how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. Considered by many as 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.”
