North Summit High School is pleased to announce that "South Pacific" will be presented as the school musical Jan. 8, 9, and 11. Everyone is invited to the performances, which will begin at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $5 per person. All seats are general admission; there is no reserved seating. The auditorium will open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the high school office or can be purchased at the door.

This musical by Rogers and Hammerstein is based on "Tales of the South Pacific" by James Michener. It is considered by critics to be among the greatest musicals of the twentieth century. The original Broadway production won 10 Tony awards. The story takes place during World War II, where a naive Navy nurse, Nellie, becomes romantically involved with Emile de Becque, a French plantation owner. The American sailors are growing restless and bored without combat to keep them active. They dream of traveling to Bali Ha’i, a nearby island. Meanwhile, a U.S. Marine, Lieutenant Joe Cable, arrives on the island undercover on a dangerous spy mission crucial to the outcome of the war. Bloody Mary, one of the few women on the island, takes an interest in Cable and introduces him to her daughter Liat. Amid the emotion of war in a distant land, the story is punctuated with an outstanding score and scenery.

The North Summit drama and music departments have been working very hard to prepare for this presentation. Come out and enjoy the talents of these high school students. A student and community orchestra will accompany the show. A special thanks is extended to all students, staff, and community members who have generously given time and efforts toward the success of this production.
