The play was enjoyable, funny and entertaining. Most of the performers had great voices. I especially liked Bloody Mary. Of course, I loved the music. I went with 5 others and we all really enjoyed the play.

Excellent production of a classic. The male lead has a world class voice. The entire cast seemed to really enjoy performing. The music was hauntingly beautiful and nostalgic. First rate.

This was an enjoyable though not the fantastic production we have learned to expect from the Welk theater. For those of us who saw the movie it was a little disappointing. All of the singing voices were good, espcially the Lt.Cable's However ...continued

Worse production of South Pacific I have ever seen. Have seen better High School productions. Emile DeBeque was terrible...Voice was OK but acting was very bad. Nellie was OK but was hard to understand her lines(as was Emile) beyond the 5th row....continued

An excellent production. The venue is very good accoustically. The principals were uniformly very well accomplished and Emil Debeque had one of the best Baritone voices I've heard in a long time. Nellie was very good and perky. Overall a first...continued

We enjoyed the play and the music brought back a lot of memories. The Male lead had an excellent singing voice and he enunciated extremely well. The Female Lead had a nice singing voice but she talked so fast and in such a high pitch that at...continued

This is a terrific show, well worth the drive from San Diego to Escondido. The performers were outstanding, including the pit orchestra. We enjoyed all the wonderful music, the dance numbers, the talented singers. We also had dinner at the Canyon...continued

The show has a really excellent cast and a four-piece live band. The story is of course timeless, and the show moved along quickly.

It was a delightful production all around! The voices were excellent, and balanced the roles very well. The set worked well and the choreography was within the grasp of all. We relaxed and enjoyed every moment...once again!

The show overall was good. The lighting was poor and the orchestra was weak. The leading singers were very good but could blend better. The direction was so-so.

The entire cast was excellent!

My first time at Lawrence Welk Theater. It was very comfortable seating, great acoustics, and stage decorations very well done. Beautiful singing and great acting. Very glad I went.

The production was good. Maybe not quite as professional as other events at Welk. Some of the voices weren't the best, but the show was great. Great music and great storyline. Racism stinks no matter where it is.
