Axminster Musical Theatre are set to thrill audiences with their forthcoming production of South Pacific.

This musical is without doubt one of the most loved musicals of all time with many well-known songs.

Can a girl from Little Rock (Nellie Forbush) find happiness with a mature French planter (Emile de Becque) she got to know one enchanted evening away from the military hospital where she is a nurse?

Or should she just wash that man right out of her hair?

There are sailors, there are nurses, there is Bloody Mary trying to marry off her daughter Liat to Lt Joseph Cable.

The war gets closer and the saga of Nellie Forbush and Emile de Becque becomes serious drama and all brought together with the wonderful music and lyrics of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

South Pacific runs from Wednesday, November 15 to Saturday, November 18, at Axminster Guildhall at 7.30pm with a matinee on the Saturday at 2 30pm.

Tickets are available from The Archway Bookshop 01297 33595 or online at seaty.co.uk/southpacific
