It contains some of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s best-known songs including Some Enchanted Evening, There Is Nothing Like A Dame, Happy Talk and I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair. It is set on a South Sea island in 1941 and tells the story of Emile de Beeque and nurse Ensign Nellie Forbush.

The company was established 116 years ago and was previously known as the Northampton Amateur Operatic Company.
