Truckee High School presents Roger & Hammerstein’s famous musical, “South Pacific.” One of the most famous Broadway musical’s of all time, “South Pacific” has won 10 Tony Awards and features iconic songs such as “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair” and “Some Enchanted Evening.”
The musical is set in WWII, but challenges important issues we still struggle with in modern society—namely those of racism and outdated gender roles. Not only will this production shine light on these ongoing problems, but will serve as a history lesson to younger audience members. With a cast of talented student actors and amazing vocals, this season promises to be unforgettable. Featuring period costumes and extensive sets, this production of “South Pacific” is one you don’t want to miss!
Also, for the first time in years, the spring musical will feature a live orchestra!
