Axminster Musical Theatre’s next treat for theatre goers after their great success with The Full Monty last November is South Pacific!

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical is being staged at Axminster Guildhall this week, from Wednesday, November 15 to Saturday, November 18, at 7.30pm with a matinee on the Saturday, at 2.30pm.

Set in an island paradise during World War Two, 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, and thus begins their whirlwind romance.

Liat (Phoebe Goodwin) and Lt Joe Cable (Dan Wylde) will be appearing in Axminster Musical Theatre's production of South Pacific. Picture: ContributedLiat (Phoebe Goodwin) and Lt Joe Cable (Dan Wylde) will be appearing in Axminster Musical Theatre's production of South Pacific. Picture: Contributed

Meanwhile, the strapping lieutenant, Joe Cable visits the island of Bali Hai and is introduced to Bloody Mary’s beautiful daughter, Liat, and soon falls in love with her.

Featuring some of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most famous tunes including I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair, There is Nothing Like a Dame, Bali Hai, Cock Eyed Optimist and Some Enchanted Evening and many more, this classic musical is not one to be missed.
