About this show

This captivating and timeless treasure of wills, wits and wisdom has been enchanting audiences for almost 60 years. Set against an exotic background, The King and I is the moving true story of a young English widow and her son who travel to Siam to tutor the King's (Lorenzo Lamas) children. In Siam, she encounters an unfamiliar world full of grand beauty, but mixed with rigid Old World traditions. As the King decides how to bring his country into a new age, he and Anna begin to see beyond traditions and prejudices into what makes people special and what makes a man a true king. The lush Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes "Getting to Know You," "Shall We Dance?" "I Whistle A Happy Tune" and "Hello, Young Lovers."
