Embracing Our Differences is proud to partner with Venice Theatre to bring, “South Pacific,” to students in South Sarasota county.

“South Pacific” is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan.

Winner of 10 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this beloved musical is set in an island paradise during World War II, where two parallel love stories are threatened by prejudice and war. The memorable Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes such classics as “Bali Ha’i,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” and “Some Enchanted Evening.”

The plot centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II, who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race children. A secondary romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, explores his fears of the social consequences should he marry his Asian sweetheart. The issue of racial prejudice is candidly explored throughout the musical, most controversially in the lieutenant’s song, “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught.” Supporting characters, including a comic petty officer and the Tonkinese girl’s mother, help to tie the stories together.
