About

South Pacific

Presented by:

By Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan | Composed by Richard Rodgers with Lyrics by Hammerstein

Triad Stage, in partnership with UNC Greensboro, brings to life one of Broadway’s most iconic musicals. The world is at war, and on an island in the South Pacific the U.S. has created a military stopover for young men on their way to the front lines of battle. But love is also in the air. Emotions run high as a Midwestern nurse and a young lieutenant each navigate the treacherous waters of unfamiliar cultures and new romances. Winner of the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific will sweep you away with the delightful cast of characters and unforgettable songs like “Bali Ha’i”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” and “Younger Than Springtime.” Triad Stage invites you to be part of its most ambitious production to date.

TRIAD SALUTES!
Triad Stage will honor American service men and women for their contributions to our country and community at performances of South Pacific. Community nominations were accepted throughout the month of August, and nominees will be contacted and invited to attend and be recognized.

Triad Stage honors Greensboro man in a history-making black U.S. Navy band

October 8, 2017

For a few brief minutes before the curtain rose, Calvin Morrow became the star of the show. With his B-1 U.S. Navy Band patch and Navy ribbons displayed on his blue suit, a beaming Morrow basked in cheers and applause from the Triad Stage audience. Gertrude Morrow joined the applause as her husband of 67 years stood on stage, a cane the only concession to his 93 years.

Theater review: Triad Stage's 'South Pacific' a memorable island getaway
News & Record
September 29, 2017

Sometimes revisiting an established theater classic doesn’t pay off: too many familiar moments. That’s not the case with Triad Stage’s current revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s 1949 musical “South Pacific,” based on James Michener’s 1947 book. This well-cast, energetically performed production brings back the manyattributes of the original that made it such a hit.

Triad Stage Joins Forces with Community Organizations to Reinvent SOUTH PACIFIC
Broadway World
September 25, 2017

When the Broadway musical South Pacific premiered in 1949, its commentary on race and depiction of relationships between different ethnicities was such a striking departure from the genre that critics and audiences alike deemed it inappropriate. In similar fashion, the southeast regional professional theater Triad Stage seeks not just to repeat plays, but to reimagine them. And it is doing just that with South Pacific, which runs Sept. 17 - Oct. 15 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
