South Pacific is one of the most well-known musicals, with popular classics such as: “Some Enchanted Evening”, “Bali Ha’i”, “There Is Nothing Like A Dame”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair”, “Younger Than Springtime”, “Happy Talk” and “I’m In Love With A Wonderful Guy”.

Adapted from the 1948 Pulitzer Prize winning novel "Tales of the South Pacific” by James Michener, with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, it was controversial at the time, and still ringing chords today, as it candidly explores the issue of racial prejudice, but doesn’t let that overpower the comedy and emotion that characterises this musical.
