Photo Coverage: First look at Pickerington Community Theatre's SOUTH PACIFICPhoto Coverage: First look at Pickerington Community Theatre's SOUTH PACIFIC
by Jerri Shafer - Jul 7, 2016

South Pacific is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan. The plot centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II, who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race children. A secondary romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, explores his fears of the social consequences should he marry his Asian sweetheart. The issue of racial prejudice is candidly explored throughout the musical, most controversially in the lieutenant's song, 'You've Got to Be Carefully Taught'. Supporting characters, including a comic petty officer and the Tonkinese girl's mother, help to tie the stories together. (more...)
