Upcoming Performances

The Prout School Performing Arts Department will present the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic, South Pacific, on April 12 and 13. Performances will take place in the school’s auditorium at 7pm each evening. 

South Pacific, an entertaining musical with rousing songs and compelling characters, is based on the James Michener’s first novel, Tales of the South Pacific.

In addition to its reputation as an entertaining musical with rousing songs and compelling characters, South Pacific explores the issue of racial prejudice. The story, which takes place on a South Pacific island during World War II, centers on an American nurse 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.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors.
