The King and I, a critically acclaimed and multi-award winning romantic musical which originally premiered in 1952, visits most major British cities on an extensive UK tour. Based on the book Anna and the King of Siam, The King and I follows the turbulent relationship between a British school teacher and the King himself. A moving and captivating performance boasting an impressive musical score with the much-loved numbers “Whistle a Happy Tune” and “Getting to Know You”, The King and I is not to be missed!
Set in the early 1860s, widowed Anna Leonownes and her son, Louis, board a ship and embark on an adventurous journey to Bangkok, which was formerly known as Siam. Taking a position as a schoolteacher for the King of Siam’s children, Anna becomes the King’s advisor, as he is keen to westernise and modernise his city. Disagreeing on many matters, the two form a fiercely conflicted and contentious relationship which then develops into a passionate, unique love story.
Originally written by Rodgers and Hammerstein for Broadway in 1951, The King and I UK tour stars West End’s Annalene Beehcy and Broadway’s Jose Llana. A spine-tingling, unforgettable musical, The King and I has been mesmerising audiences for decades!
