April 20-June 4, 2017 – South Pacific

One of the most celebrated of all shows by the most celebrated of all musical teams, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC is a story of love, of heroism, of courage, of optimism, of America. Set during World War II this epic tale is told with humor, passion, beauty, action, and one of Broadway’s most impressive musical scores featuring such unforgettable songs as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair,” “There Is Nothing Like a Dame,” “I’m in Love With A Wonderful Guy,” and the beautifully haunting “Bali Ha’i.” This is one of the very few musicals to have earned the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Fireside is proud to present this timeless classic in an all new sumptuous production.

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday

The Share the Road event consists of both a run/bike/run duathlon and a 5k run/walk. As the events take place at the same time, you cannot participate in both.

The duathlon’s first segment is a 3-mile route through residential area of Watertown and Riverside Park. Then you will transition to a 20-mile well marked route through the scenic countryside with rolling hills north of Watertown. The final segment will be a 2-mile run through Riverside Park and residential area of Watertown but with a different twist than the first segment. There will be aid stations in transition area and a sag wagon on the bike route. We would like this to be a family friendly event as well a competitive event!

The duathlon transition area will open at 7:30 a.m. and close at 8:45 a.m. Start time for the duathlon and the 5k run and walk is 9:00 a.m., with duathlon participants leaving first.

Awards will be for the top 5 for each age division for the duathlon and 5k.
