CULTURES COLLIDE AND HEARTS MELT IN THIS DAZZLING CLASSIC MUSICAL

The King of Siam wants to bring  Western culture to his country and engages Anna Leonowens, an attractive English school teacher, to serve as tutor to his many children and wives.  Anna and her young son come to the Royal Palace in Bangkok and there begins a unique and moving love story. Cultures and hearts collide as the King defends his traditions while Anna tries to bring change to his family and his world.  A unique and moving love story unfolds.

Richard Rodger’s dazzling score for The King and I includes some of the most famous and popular songs he ever wrote:  I Whistle a Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers, Getting to Know You, We Kiss in a Shadow, Something Wonderful and Shall We Dance?
