Some Enchanted Evening at Canyon Crest Academy!
Don’t miss “Some Enchanted Evening” at Canyon Crest Academy –
a chance to take in opening night of SOUTH
PACIFIC and have a delicious Hawaiian barbecue dinner presented by
L&L Hawaiian Barbecue. South
Pacific is currently experiencing a successful revival on Broadway, so here
is your chance to enjoy what is widely considered the greatest musical of all
time right here in Carmel Valley. Set
on a remote island during World War II, the story follows the romance of
Nellie Forbush, a Navy nurse, and Emile de Becque, a wealthy French
plantation owner and features such classic Rodgers and Hammerstein tunes as
“Some Enchanted Evening” and “Bali Ha’i.”
South Pacific is directed by
CCA theatre instructor Jeannine Marquie, a successful local actor who directed
last years sold out production of Grease
at CCA. The musical director is
