Hanford High School is presenting South Pacific the next two weekends.
Performances of the classic musical are at 7:30 p.m. May 5-6 and 11-12 at the school, 450 Hanford St., Richland. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Hanford teacher Matt Leggett is directing. “South Pacific entails all that we love in a musical, (including) a romantic love story, beautiful music, comic characters, and it is set during one of the most dramatic periods of US history: World War II,” he said in a statement.
“In addition to that, the story addresses the ongoing American problem of racism. There is literally something for everyone, and we have enjoyed and grown from the experience of working on it,” he said.
Never miss a local story.
Tickets are $10 to $12, depending on the seat. They’re available at hanforddrama.org and at the door.
