South Pacific Performed
The TASIS Spring musical, South Pacific allowed the TASIS community to escape late winter weather and dream of Bali Hai and warmer temperatures. Four performances took place in late March to full houses in the new John E. Palmer Theater. The new space provided an excellent venue for both performers and audience members. For Drama Director Kay Hamblin this musical was bittersweet. In June, Kay will return to the United States to enjoy a well-deserved retirement. As the curtain closed on the final performance, Kay smiled to a standing ovation and cheers from students, faculty, friends and family.
From the Philipines to Kazakhstan, over thirty students from fifteen countries were part of the production. Rehearsals began in earnest after Ski Week and continued until opening night, March 17th. It is a difficult task to juggle studies, sports, and the responsibilities of being part of a project so involved and complicated as musical. The students did a wonderfrul and memorable job as evidenced by the number of students and faculty humming "Some Enchanted Evening" as they walked around campus performance week!
