Friday, August 18 – Sunday, August 20

Based on the stories of a real-life Navy commander, South Pacific brings island life during World War II to the stage through deeply felt drama, unconventional love affairs, and some of the most recognizable songs in Broadway history.  “Bali Ha’i”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair”, “There is Nothing Like a Dame”, “Younger Than Springtime”, “I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy”, and “Some Enchanted Evening” are just the beginning.  The heart of this musical is two parallel love stories, each tested by the dangers of war and the perils of discrimination.  Hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking, South Pacific’s portrayal of prejudice and war is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences and won both the Tony for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

 

All shows will be performed on the Main Stage of Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts, 310 Chestnut Street, Wilmington, NC.
