The Ticket Liquidator Lowdown
  • Ticket Liquidator is a resale marketplace, not a ticket seller. Prices are set by third-party sellers and may be above or below face value.

    close

    Ticket Liquidator is a nationwide network through which professional companies and trusted individuals resell tickets to events. This means that we don't charge your card, nor do we own, price, or ship the tickets listed for sale on our marketplace. The tickets are owned instead by hundreds of sellers who re-price their tickets based on the popularity of the event and the number of tickets available.
  • All seats are together unless stated otherwise.

    close

    We understand that people often attend events with friends or family and want to be located near the ones they love. Therefore, although seat numbers are not listed, we guarantee that tickets purchased through Ticket Liquidator will be together unless explicitly stated otherwise (e.g. the seller advertises the tickets as being "piggybacked" or "split") or the tickets are General Admission.
  • Tickets are not guaranteed to ship immediately.

    close

    The sellers who list tickets on our marketplace access tickets from a variety of sources - venues, fan clubs, event promoters, industry insiders, and even other ticket resellers. Some sellers may have to wait to receive tickets from their supplier due to ticket printing or distribution delays. Please note, though, that delayed delivery does not change the fact that you are guaranteed to receive your tickets by the date of the event once your order is accepted by the seller. Sellers also do their best to advertise expected delivery delays on their listings in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.
  • All sales are final.

    close

    Tickets are time-sensitive items. Prices rise and fall over time and their value expires following the event date. This means that sellers would be taking a risk by allowing customers to return tickets that might never be resold or otherwise resold for the same value as what you paid. The ticketing industry has therefore adopted an “all sales are final” policy that disallows ticket return. If, however, you find yourself unable or unwilling to use your tickets, you can always check out our consumer seller program.

South Pacific Information

About the Show:

South Pacific is widely regarded as one of the best musicals ever written. Adapted from James A. Michener's novel Tales of the South Pacific, which won the 1948 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, it went on to win the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The score is by the legendary pair of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II (Oklahoma!, Carousel), and the book is by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan (original director of Annie Get Your Gun, among others). The show premiered on Broadway on April 7, 1949 and ran for nearly 5 years, through January 16, 1954, after a whopping 1,925 performances. There have been several London and New York productions over the years as well as national tours that have lasted for years at a time. The original cast included Mary Martin (Peter Pan) as Nellie Forbush, but many actresses have since stepped into her shoes, including Cloris Leachman (TV's The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Florence Henderson (TV's The Brady Bunch), Reba McEntire (Annie Get Your Gun), Kelli O'Hara (A Light in the Piazza), and Laura Osnes (Anything Goes).

South Pacific's score has launched some of the most memorable musical theater classics, including "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair," "There is Nothing Like a Dame," "A Cockeyed Optimist," "Bali Ha'i," "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy," and "Younger Than Springtime." Get your own South Pacific tickets now to hear these and more beautiful classics and see this American classic story live.

Plot Synopsis:

During World War II, U.S. Navy nurse Ensign Nellie Forbush, from Little Rock, Arkansas, has fallen in love with Emile de Becque, a middle-aged French plantation owner on an island in the South Pacific, and he has loved her ever since they met at the officer's club dance. When she returns to the hospital, it is revealed that the two half-Polynesian children playing outside are his, but Nellie does not know. Meanwhile, the American seabees, led by Luther Billis, grow restless in the absence of women. The only civilian woman around is Bloody Mary, a middle-aged Tonkinese woman with an attitude. She tries to sell her wares while acting flirtatiously with the men. Billis desires to visit the forbidden, exotic, nearby island of Bali Ha'i, where there are rumored to be young French women.

When U.S. Marine Lieutenant Joseph Cable arrives on the island, Bloody Mary tries to persuade him to visit Bali Ha'i, and Billis encourages him. Cable meets with his commanding officers, who plan to ask Emile to help on a mission because he used to live on the island in question and it is rumored that he committed a murder. They enlist Nellie to find out more from Emile, who invites her to a party to introduce her to his friends. After he comes clean about fleeing France because he killed a local tyrant in self-defense, she is touched by his honesty and agrees to marry him.

The Naval officers ask Emile to accompany Cable to a Japanese-controlled island, but he refuses in order to stay with Nellie. They place Cable on leave until the mission can commence, and he is persuaded to go to Bali Ha'i with Billis. Once there, Bloody Mary, convinced that her daughter's only hope for a better future is to marry an American officer, leaves the two alone together. The girl, Liat, and Cable are immediately attracted to one another and make love. Meanwhile, Nellie and Emile celebrate their engagement after his big party. But when he reveals that the half-Polynesian children are his by a now-deceased native woman, Nellie can not overcome her racial prejudices and reluctantly leaves Emile.

On Thanksgiving, the seabees and nurses put on a show called "The Thanksgiving Follies." Cable, who has been to Bali Ha'i frequently to visit Liat, has succumbed to the malaria outbreak there. When Bloody Mary urges him to marry her daughter, he refuses, saying that his family would never approve of him marrying a Tonkinese girl. Angered, Bloody Mary drags Liat away, promising to marry her off to a better man. Back at the Follies, Emile asks Cable and Nellie why they have such racial prejudices, and while they acknowledge that they were not born with them, they maintain that they are still deeply ingrained within them.

Now feeling that he has nothing to lose, Emile agrees to accompany Cable on the mission. Thanks to a highly orchestrated diversion, American aircraft are able to destroy Japanese ships. And while Emile narrowly escapes harm, Cable is killed. Nellie, worried that Emile has been killed, hates herself for rejecting him. Bloody Mary and Liat come to ask where Cable is because Liat refuses to marry anyone else; Nellie comforts the young girl after she hears the terrible news. Later, Nellie spends time with Emile's children and begins to love them. One day, while the children are teaching her to sing one of their songs, they hear Emile's voice from afar. Nellie, finally overcoming her racist attitudes, agrees to become his wife and their mother. Order your South Pacific tickets now to experience this gripping story come to life on stage.
