Flat Rock Playhouse continues the 2019 season with summer blockbuster musical and Broadway classic “South Pacific.” Known for its glorious score by Rodgers and Hammerstein, the show transports audiences to the Pacific Islands in World War II as young couples struggle with the dynamics of love, war and faith. Yet “South Pacific” also showcases a vibrant, delightful comedic side found in the business of everyday life: raising children, relationship squabbles and workplace gossip.
“South Pacific” delivers the best of the beloved Broadway classic — picturesque settings, deeply moving plot lines, an impeccable score — as well as a refreshing, modern interpretation that will speak to audiences of all ages. Whether a die-hard fan of the classic or newcomer to the story, audiences can expect Flat Rock Playhouse’s production to capitalize on the rich resource material while also layering in state-of-the-art technology to create a unique, refreshed production. In particular, “South Pacific” features the combined use of projections to capture sweeping landscapes with handcrafted sets, costumes and props to maintain a rich, tangible world for the performers.
