Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan, Adapted from the Pulizer Prize winning novel “Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener.
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his two children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, she refuses Emile’s marriage proposal. Meanwhile, pilot Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he has fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s score include these classics: Some Enchanted Evening, There Is Nothing Like a Dame, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair and Bali Ha’i.
