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."

Patience is set in a contemporary English village, where Bunthorne, an ardent Star Trek fan, is worshipped by all the young ladies who have become Star Trek fans to gain his attention. That is to say, all except for the one he most wants, Patience. The local army regiment returns home on leave to find that even their own fiancees are infatuated with Bunthorne and cosplay dressing in Star Trek garb! A rival science fiction fan, Grosvenor, who adheres to the Doctor Who series, arrives in town and complications mount when he, too, falls in love with Patience. Who will win the heart of Patience–the Trekkie or the Whovian?
