Actors from Fresno to Visalia have joined together to create a memorable performance. "South Pacific" is a classic Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical filled with comedy, drama and unforgettable music. Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. However, the real highlights of the production are its dynamic characters: Nellie, the spunky nurse from Arkansas, who falls in love with the mature French planter Emile. Other memorable supporting roles are the brassy Bloody Mary, the ruff comic relief Luther Billis and the handsome Lieutenant Cable with his beautiful island girl Liat.
This is the Selma Arts Center's first major production of the year.
Performances for "South Pacific" will be this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:00 pm. This Saturday you can catch the show at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Tickets for "South Pacific" are $20 for adults $17 dollars for seniors, veterans, military and 18 years and under.
