Chichester Theatre Trip – South Pacific
August 23, 2021
Coach pick up, time to spend in Chichester, evening performance and return coach.
1943. On an archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean, US troops are kicking their heels amid the cacao groves while restlessly waiting for the war to reach them.
Nellie Forbush, a navy nurse from Arkansas, finds herself falling for the French plantation owner, Emile de Becque – a man with a mysterious past. The scheming sailor Luther Billis runs a makeshift laundry to earn a quick buck, but he’s no match for the quick-witted Polynesian Bloody Mary who’s intent on exploiting these foreigners.
When young Princeton graduate Lieutenant Joe Cable is flown in on a dangerous reconnaissance mission, love and fear become entwined as the island’s battle for hearts and minds begins.
This much-loved, Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical opened in 1949 to huge success, becoming one of Broadway’s longest running hit shows. It boasts one of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most memorable scores, featuring songs such as Some Enchanted Evening, There is Nothin’ Like A Dame, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair and Bali Ha’i.
This new production is directed by Artistic Director Daniel Evans whose previous Chichester productions include This Is My Family, Quiz and Fiddler on the Roof.
With a few hours of free time before the show starts you have the opportunity to enjoy the pedestrianised shopping streets of Chichester, its Cathedral or just sit down and relax with a drink and a bite to eat. It always makes for a very enjoyable trip.
For the past 10 years our annual Summer visit to Chichester has sold out, last time around we took two full coaches and still had a waiting list! I can’t remember when South Pacific was last performed in the West End and it is the first time for Chichester as their main Summer musical. So do book early to avoid missing out.
