A CR Opera Young Artist Program Production
Directed by Bill Fabris
Love and adventure await in this summer’s Young Artist Program production of the hit musical South Pacific. An American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II falls in love with a French plantation owner, but struggles to accept his children from a previous relationship with an islander. The show sizzles with songs like, “I’m Going to Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair,” while sending a strong, progressive message about recognizing racism. This 10-time Tony Award winning show is a must see for all ages.
