“South Pacific Dinner Theatre”
Reviewed 10 February 2010

We went to the South Pacific show and buffet, and while we didn't expect anything close to "Off-Broadway," we didn't expect such a low budget production. The only set is a painted piece of canvas with a few props. The stage is too low and the table seating makes it impossible for anyone past the first three rows to see the show. The show brings in 2.5 million a year so we thought they could have spent a little more on the production. The male lead is a forced baratone for tenor songs, (it is a small island, so we forgive the singing,) but he runs the gambit of English and German accents while only periodically getting to to the French accent of Emile. This show is definately for the senior crowd, and only if to reminise about the classic 50's film version, shot on Kauai. Overall, the evening is overpriced, $50.00 would have been fair.
If you're looking for a nice buffet/community theatre event spent chating with other tourists, it's a fine way to spend an evening. Just don't expect much or you'll be disappointed.
I would suggest a Napali Dinner Cruise for the same price...better food/views/experience. But if you can do everything on the island, this is something to do. Aloha!
