Wanna get the story behind the Broadway hit South Pacific (which is slated to hit Belk Theater Nov. 10-15)? Check out the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Education Institute's Get to Know the Show series tonight, as folks with the Carolinas Asian Chamber of Commerce Charlotte and the Mecklenburg County Veterans Services come together on a panel discussing the real stories of love and war, prejudice and courage in the South Pacific. A great information session before getting lost in the show. RSVP required and free appetizers and beverages will be provided.
