South Pacific, which was adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Tales of the South Pacific by James A. Michener, is set in an island paradise during World War II. Two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

Nellie (Hannah Jay), a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile (Ben Strader). As their love flourishes Nellie is not sure if she can overcome the prejudices with which she was raised. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable (Brian Baudin) denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl (Samantha Shook) with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness. Filled with the antics of Luther Billis (Dustin Greco), Seabees and Nurses, the story brings to life war, love and loss.

The Cabin Fever Players chose to perform this show to honor the men and women that served during WOrld War II.

"Without their sacrifices we might not be free today," Liddle said. "At the start of the show there will be a power point presentation to honor these men and women from our own home towns. And we want to thank these veterans for their commitment to their country."
