1. South Pacific – Sunday, April 1st
Based on the 2008 Tony Award winning Lincoln Center Theater production, this version of Roger and Hammerstein’s South Pacific is breathtaking! Considered by many to be the best musical ever written, South Pacific is a romantic story set on a tropical island during World War II. The musical tells the story of two young couples who find their happiness threatened by war and their own prejudices. The musical score includes songs such as “This Nearly Was Mine”, “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame”, and “Some Enchanted Evening”. The story is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book “Tales of the South Pacific” by James Michener.
