SOUTH PACIFIC Runs October 11-16 at Times-Union Center

A new production of Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical SOUTH PACIFIC makes its Jacksonville debut at the Times-Union Center's Moran Theater next week and is the opening production of the 2011-2012 Artist Series' Broadway Season in Jacksonville.

Set on a tropical island during World War II, SOUTH PACIFIC tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples -- US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush and French plantation owner Emile de Becque and Navy Airman Joe Cable and a young local native girl Liat -- and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices.

Wednesday night's performance is a dedicated Military Night, with 25% discounted tickets for military personnel and their families, as well as a post-show Q&A with cast members.

This breathtaking new production is based on the 2008 Tony Award® winning Lincoln Center Theater production, directed by Bartlett Sher. Based on James Michener's Pulitzer Prize winning book Tales of the South Pacific, Rodgers & Hammerstein's SOUTH PACIFIC has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan.
