A true classic for the ages, South Pacific overflows with some of the finest music ever written for the American stage, spinning a dangerously romantic tale while also candidly exploring themes of racism, tolerance, and inclusion. Following the struggles faced by young American soldiers and nurses stationed on a tropical naval base during the Second World War, STAGES' patrons will be moved by a breathtaking tale blooming with passion and romance and a spectacularly unrivaled score.
