"A classic story brought to vibrant life on the Scottish stage. South Pacific was beautiful, from its brilliant special effects to the lovely singers and actors who made the story come alive. I wasn’t sure I would like this musical because I worried the themes would seem dated and old. BUT I was very wrong, the story is still very prevalent today and has a lovely message. With all the old musical favorites like “I’m gonna wash that man right outa my hair “and “some enchanted evening”. With a lot of good and surprising comedy. I would definitely recommend this show for lovers of classic musicals!"
