This epic musical romance is set on a South Pacific island during WWII, where American sailors and nurses are stationed. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Little Rock, Arkansas, falls in love with Emile de Becque, a French expatriate and plantation owner, and Lt. Joseph Cable finds himself in a passionate affair with Liat, the young daughter of Bloody Mary, the local grass-skirt peddler. As the war against Japan escalates, reality sets in for both Nellie and Joseph, who struggle to reconcile their unconventional love affairs with their long-held prejudices and insecurities. Each performance will be accompanied by the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, featuring hit songs like “Some Enchanted Evening”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair”, “Bali Hai”, “There’s Nothing Like A Dame”, and many more!
