South Pacific is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. It opened on Broadway on April 7, 1949 and was an immense critical and box-office hit, enjoying what was then the second-longest Broadway run for a musical.

The original Broadway production won ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Libretto, and it is the only musical production to win Tony Awards in all four acting categories. It also won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1950.

The show has since enjoyed many successful revivals and tours, spawning a 1958 filmand other adaptations. The 2008 Broadway revival was a strong success, winning seven Tonys including Best Musical Revival.

Several of its songs, including "Bali Ha'i", "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair", "Some Enchanted Evening", "Happy Talk", "Younger Than Springtime" and "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy", have become popular standards.

The plot centers on an American nurse stationed at a U.S. Naval base on a South Pacific island during World War II who falls in love with an expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race children. A second romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, explores his fears of the social consequences should he wed his Asian sweetheart. The issue of racial prejudice is candidly explored throughout the musical, most controversially in the lieutenant's song, "You've Got to Be Carefully Taught".

      Hi Valerie, Michael and I could not attend South Pacific but I suspect that it was wonderful. If you bought a ticket, you can exchange it for another day/time for the SAME show. All the plays at Glendale Centre Theatre are Well Done!

    I can sing the whole score, if anyone is interested. I should mention that I don't have the greatest voice, but the shower doesn't seem to mind.

    Went Saturday night. A terrific show . The theater validates parking for 3 hours when you park down the street in the city public parking building . The parking lot next to the theatre as 3 hours of parking until 10 pm . The charge is 1 dollar an hour -machine takes only quarters.
