Multi award-winning Rodger and Hammerstein classic South Pacific will grace the stage in Cambridge later this month.

Presented by the Cambridge Operatic Society, the musical tells the romantic story of two couples drawn together across different cultures.

It is one of only eight musicals to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was also awarded four Tony Awards.

Penned by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, one of America’s most successful musical theatre writing teams, South Pacific was an instant success in 1949 on Broadway and its success was repeated in the West End.

The Cambridge Operatic Society has produced a wide range of shows such as My Fair Lady and The Merry Widow.

The local amateur dramatics group was founded in 1910 and since then they have produced nearly 100 shows which have delighted many generations.

South Pacific runs at Cambridge Arts Theatre from November 26 to 30.
