Review | Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific | Directed by Robert Boedeker | North Fork Community Theatre, Mattituck, Long Island

… a complete world …

Looking for an enchanted evening?  You couldn’t find a better one than an evening spent at South Pacific — beautifully produced and played by the North Fork Community Theatre.
