“South Pacific”
Fredericksburg, VA

Wednesday – August 7, 2019

Set against the dramatic background of an idyllic South Pacific island during WWII, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific intertwines the themes of romance, duty, and prejudice to create a story that is all at once hilarious, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. Based on the anecdotes of a real-life U.S. Navy commander stationed on an island, the musical follows two intercultural love stories: Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile, a French plantation owner on the island who has two children from his late Polynesian wife; at the same time, U.S. Lieutenant Cable falls for a beautiful island native named Liat. Both Americans find themselves struggling to reconcile their own cultural prejudices with their amorous feelings, all the while under the dark cloud of a war that is coming ever closer to their island paradise. Enjoy lyrical favorites “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger Than Springtime,” “There is Nothing Like a Dame,” and many more in this Broadway classic.

white house.jpg

 Visiting the White House in Washington, D.C. is a time-honored and treasured holiday tradition.  The custom of placing a decorated tree in the White House began in 1889 on Christmas morning during the Presidency of Benjamin Harrison. What began as a family gathering has become a national tradition.  Stroll through America’s most prestigious and honored house and experience firsthand, the beautiful trees and decorations of this holiday season.   After a morning at the White House and White House Visitor Center, lunch will be included at a popular area restaurant as well as an additional attraction in the afternoon.  Details will be announced once the date is finalized.  PLEASE NOTEFor the best chance of seeing the White House, we recommend signing up immediately. $75 of tour cost is non-refundable if canceled after names have been submitted to the White House at the end of August. Once names are submitted there are no substitutions, additions or changes. Please, No Phone Calls. SignaTours will notify you immediately upon notification by the White House in late November. Again, Do Not Call for Dates. The White House makes all decisions on appointments. SignaTours has no say in the decision-making process. The White House Tour is a “Guaranteed Departure” and will run as planned. In the unlikely event your tour is denied entry into the White House, an optional tour will be planned in its place, most likely a Tour of the United States Capitol.
