St Pauls Drama invite you to our next musical extravaganza South Pacific
Set against the dramatic background of an idyllic South Pacific island during WWII, SP intertwines the themes of romance, duty, and prejudice to create a story that is all at once hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. Based on the anecdotes of a real-life U.S.Navy commander who was stationed on an island, the musical follows two intercultural love stories: Nellie, a spirited nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile, a French plantation owner and U.S. Lieutenant Cable falls for a beautiful island native named Liat.
Both Americans find themselves struggling to reconcile their own cultural prejudices with their feelings of love, all the while under the dark cloud of a war that is coming ever closer to their island paradise.
South Pacific is an absolute classic musical with themes that are still vey relevant today. With songs such as 'Some Enchanted Evening' 'There is nothing like a dame' 'Happy Talk' and 'Younger than Springtime' this is set to be an evening to remember. We hope you'll come and join the fun.
