The Rodgers & Hammerstein musical favorite “South Pacific” comes alive at the Davis Musical Theatre Company Feb. 28 through March 23.

“South Pacific,” based on James A. Michener’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book “Tales of the South Pacific,” draws from multiple story elements in the text. The original Broadway production opened in April of 1947, winning the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1950 and gathering 10 Tony awards. The 2008 Broadway revival at Lincoln Center followed in these footsteps, winning seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival.

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. This drama remains as relevant today as it was in 1949, featuring such timeless favorites as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair,” “This Nearly Was Mine” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.”
The show is performed at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive, and plays at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays. It is directed by John Haine and choreographed by Katherine Coppola, with musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Peter Kagstrom. It is recommended for all ages.

Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors 55 and older, plus a $2 facility fee per ticket. They are available online at www.dmtc.org, or by calling 530-756-3682.
