Once again Kudos go out to Wilma Lindquist and the Fulda Community Players for an excellent performance of “South Pacific” this past weekend.

South Pacific takes place in the 1940’s during World War II on a small island. The military personnel stationed their find themselves neither in the war or out of the war but just on the edge. The cast did a wonderful job portraying the wartime military behavior which guided their every move.

The performance was complete with just the right amount of drama, comedy, and history.

The audience was held in a trance like silence during the love connection of Frenchmen Emile deBecque and nurse Nellie Forbush as well as the fate of Lt. Joseph Cable as he traveled to Bali Hai to save his country.

Capt. Brackett and Comdr. Harbison are thrilled to get one step closer to the action thanks to Lt. Cable ‘project’.

Comic relief was also felt as the audience was kept in stitches with the antics of Luther Billis who bullies, bribes, and charms his way through military life and Bloody Mary who is a trader and seller of goods and is intent on finding an American GI for her daughter, Liat.

Many Fulda and surrounding community residents were relieved to get out of their frozen homes after a long, stormy week to enjoy this wonderful performance thanks to the Fulda Community Players.
