Now Showing: Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. "South Pacific" won 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Libretto, and it is the only musical production to win Tony Awards in all four acting categories. Its return to Broadway in 2008 was a strong success, winning seven Tonys including Best Musical Revival. Production dates are July 25-27, July 31 and Aug. 1-3, with a preview performance on July 21. Pierre Players is offering past and current military members a reduced ticket price of $10 to see South Pacific to thank them for their service. Learn more about the show
