Following the success of My Fair Lady in 2017 Kaleidoscope will return to the musical genre in 2019 with another undisputed classic, Roger and Hammerstein's epic The King and I.
The King and I tells the moving and radiant story of Anna Leonowens, a recently widowed schoolteacher, who accepts an offer from the King of Siam to educate his children in western science and culture. When Anna meets the King she embarks upon the journey of a lifetime. Despite their many disagreements beneath the troubled surface of their relationship lies one of the most unique and beautiful love stories in the history of musical theatre.
One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score which features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.”
The show will open at the Theatre at the Mill in October 2019.
