Bus Trip: South Pacific at Fireside Theatre

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Fireside Theatre Sculpture CLR 2017
One of the most celebrated of all shows by the most celebrated of all musical teams, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific is a story of love, heroism, courage and optimism of America set during WW II. This epic tale is told with humor, passion, beauty, action, and one of Broadway’s most impressive musical scores featuring unforgettable songs such as “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair,” “There is Nothing Like a Dame,” and “Some Enchanted Evening.” Enjoy this memorable musical production in a professional theatre that rivals Broadway at The Fireside!
Before the show, you will be treated to a sumptuous South Pacific themed meal beginning with a Tropical Salad which includes pineapple, mangoes, peaches and strawberries over fresh green and papaya chutney dressing! Chicken Kona Kai is a sautéed chicken breast rolled in coconut panko bread crumbs and glazed with brandied apricot sauce. The meal is accompanied by stir fried rice with Canadian bacon and a mix of fresh julienned vegetables. The delectable dessert is banana bread pudding with caramel rum sauce and homemade vanilla ice cream. The meal is served with fresh baked Artisan breads and coffee, tea or milk. The chef and his staff prepare everything from scratch in the Fireside kitchens.
There will also be time to browse the charming specialty shops or enjoy a cocktail in the Fireside lounge. You don’t want to miss this superb musical, memorable dining, spectacular shops and fabulous service at The Fireside!
