With songs like "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair," and "Bali Ha’i" South Pacific is one of the most beloved of American musicals - and Olney Theatre Center has never tackled it! Set on a remote Pacific island during World War II, South Pacific gave us the unforgettable love story between nurse Nellie Forbush and French expatriate Emile de Becque, a love threatened by war, as well as the dark corners of Nellie’s soul. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1950 Pulitzer Prize-winner was ahead of its time with its unflinching look at racism and prejudice that, sadly, still resonates today. Featuring Jessica Ball (Guys and Dolls) as Nellie Forbush.
