South Pacific

A musical performed Wednesday 2nd to Saturday 5th October 2013

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile’s proposal of marriage.

Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfilment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he’s fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie.

When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe’s life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.


"South Pacific is full of wonderful songs and has an engaging storyline that is both funny and serious..."

Joyce Handbury, NODA

"...It’s testament to the team work and fighting spirit of outfits like Bolsover Drama Group that there are still big-name shows for people to see on their doorstep..."
