With its hot-house emotions and lush melodies, this Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning musical has melted the hearts of audiences for over 60 years. At once a romantic musical and a deeply felt drama, South Pacific tells the story of Americans stationed in an unfamiliar culture in wartime, a situation as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949. Timeless themes such as love, prejudice, happiness and cultural differences are tackled with the help of an immortal score, filled with all-time favorites like "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair" and "Bali Ha'i."

Quotes & Highlights
To get into the spirit of the silent film era of Hollywood, the cast and crew visited the Silent Movie Museum in Niles and took a trip to see Jason Graae’s cabaret performance at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco that saluted composer Jerry Herman’s 80th birthday.
This romantic tale of the silent film era tells the story of legendary director Mack Sennett (best known for his Keystone Kops_) and his greatest star, the adorable Mabel Normand. It features a musical score by Jerry Herman (_Hello, Dolly!, Mame) that is considered one of his very best. Set in an early 20th-century movie studio, this delightful, intelligent musical captures the spirit of an exciting time when this new, creative industry was springing to life, with scenes that range from madcap comedy to frolicking bathing beauties to intimate romance. Don’t miss this rarely-performed musical gem!
