The UK tour of the multi-award-winning Broadway production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical.
A widowed schoolteacher, Anna, is summoned to Bangkok, Siam by the King of Siam in order to tutor his many children. Anna and the King butt heads as she works to teach the royal family about English customs and etiquette while preparing for a party for a group of European diplomats who must change their opinions about the tempestuous King.
Featuring beloved songs such as 'Whistle a Happy Tune' and 'Shall We Dance', this production of 'The King and I' features a company of over 50 performers and a full-scale orchestra.
"As with any work of art, it’s important to view 'The King and I' through a critical lens, acknowledging both its strengths and weaknesses. While the show may not be perfect, it remains a powerful and influential piece of musical theatre that continues to captivate audiences nearly 70 years after its debut."
