Rodgers & Hammerstein'S SOUTH PACIFIC

Makes its Fort Lauderdale debut April 10 - 22 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts

Some glorious enchanted evenings (and matinees) are happily in store for local theater-goers when NETworks Presentations present's a new production of Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical.

SOUTH PACIFIC makes its Fort Lauderdale debut for a limited two week run, Tuesday, April 10 –Sunday, April 22 presented by the Bank of America, Broadway Across America - Fort Lauderdale in association with the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

This breathtaking new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's SOUTH PACIFIC 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.

Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical 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.

Considered by many the finest musical ever written, the score's songs include such classics as "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair," "Younger Than Springtime," "Bali Ha'i," "There is Nothin' Like A Dame," "This Nearly Was Mine" and "A Wonderful Guy."
