South Pacific
by Joshua Logan,  Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers
Produced by special arrangement with Rodgers & Hammerstein Theatricals

Set against the dramatic background of an idyllic South Pacific island during WWII, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific intertwines the themes of romance, duty, and prejudice to create a story that is all at once hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. Based on the anecdotes of a real-life U.S. Navy commander who was stationed on an island, the musical follows two intercultural love stories: Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile, a French plantation owner on the island who has two children from his late Polynesian wife; at the same time, U.S. Lieutenant Cable falls for a beautiful island native named Liat. Both Americans find themselves struggling to reconcile their own cultural prejudices with their amorous feelings, all the while under the dark cloud of a war that is coming ever closer to their island paradise.

Free Shows:  What a Deal!



See every Schultz performance free of charge!  How?  By joining the corps of volunteer ushers who welcome patrons to the Schultz shows.  But wait!  That’s not all!  As an usher, you may also receive complimentary tickets to give to your family and friends.


What does a Schultz usher do?  Well, volunteer ushers read the patron’s ticket to verify the correct date, show, and seating location, accompany the patron to the correct seat, and make a welcoming statement, all to make sure that everyone is set to have a pleasant experience.


Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to usher.  A few of the other qualifications include the ability to lift 30 lbs waist high, read small print, climb steps, and to bend, stretch, reach, and kneel without restriction.


If you would like to become an usher for the Schultz Theatre, you must attend the one hour usher training session beginning at 4:00 pm on Sunday, April 2, at the J. Frank Hillyard Auditorium, 226 Hawks Hill, Broadway, VA.  To attend the training session and become qualified as a Schultz usher, you must send an email to info@schultztheatre.com with your name, email address, and phone number no later than 5 pm on Friday, March 31.      


Becoming a Schultz usher is a fun way for couples and families to volunteer, to be an advocate of the theatre, and to see the show for free.  Come join the Schultz family!
