"South Pacific" at EHHS This Weekend

"South Pacific" breezes in this weekend.

With songs like "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy," "Some Enchanted Evening," and "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair," this classic Broadway Pulitzer-Prize winner is sure to continue to be a crowd-pleaser when it opens on Friday night in the auditorium. 

When the play -- which tells the story of prejudice, love, and tolerance against a wartime background -- originally opened in New York, it was a smash hit which won 11 Tony Awards. The revival in 2008 proved its staying power with eight additional Tony Awards. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "Tales of the South Pacific" by James Michener, the libretto for the musical, written by Richard Rodgers and Josh Logan with music by Oscar Hammerstein, won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

Performances are on Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m.; tickets are $10 and $5 for seniors and students. On Sunday, prior to the 3 p.m. matinee, a free luncheon will be served to senior citizens in the high school cafeteria beginning at 1 p.m. Attendees to the luncheon need to sign up first at the Senior Citizens Center on Accabonac Road.

This show will also mark the swan song for Serena Seacat, who has been directing the plays at East Hampton for over a decade.
