The King and I - June 11th - 15th
Tip Top Productions returns to Clwyd Theatr Cymru to perform the superb Rodgers and Hammerstein classic The King and I.
East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West, and he seeks Anna's assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story. Along with the dazzling score, the incomparable Jerome Robbins ballet, The Small House of Uncle Thomas, is one of the all-time marvels of the musical stage. Always a firm favourite with the public, the score also includes I Whistle A Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers, Getting To Know You, Something Wonderful and Shall We Dance?
Based on the novel 'Anna and the King of Siam' by Margaret Landon this stunning musical showcases the music of Richard Rodgers, and the book and lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II.
