South Pacific

Like many of the best Broadway musicals, South Pacific boasts music and lyrics by powerhouse duo Rodgers and Hammerstein. Performed by the talented crew at Spokane Valley Summer Theatre, this iteration of South Pacific also features Andrea Bates, an actress who toured with the show over 20 years ago. The Tony Award-winning musical centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War ll. She falls in love with an expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept the fact that he has mixed-race children. As a couple of different storylines converge, characters grow, fall in love and solve their own racial prejudices through a score filled with outstanding numbers and eye-catching choreography.

South Pacific • Thu-Fri at 7:30 pm, Sat-Sun at 2 pm through July 7 • $25-$45 • Central Valley High School • 821 S. Sullivan Road, Spokane Valley •
