First Experience: South Pacific

South Pacific is a Rogers and Hammerstein classic with timeless music and a great love story, and it’s the Delaware Theatre Company’s biggest production yet. The show brings the feeling of a Broadway stage to Delaware. First Experience gets up close and soaks it all in.

Old school craft

We have a bonus First Experience this week. We are heading outside to visit a unique craftsman who works the old school way. Rick Schuman is a woodworker, and all his tools are handmade. Wait till you see what he does with a long stick, a rope, and his experience.
