The King and I
Updates & news
Director: Jill Mason Musical Director: Louise Bours
Surely one of the world’s most popular musical shows, it is set against a dazzling and exotic backdrop in Siam, now Thailand, the King and I is the moving story of Anna, an American governess, who tries to help the king to come to terms with the modern world, but he is unable to resist the forces of ancient customs. The conflict between Eastern and Western cultures inspired this well-loved musical, which has been revived professionally many times and is always a firm favourite with the public. The score includes "I Whistle A Happy Tune", "Hello Young Lovers", "Getting To Know You", "Something Wonderful" and "Shall We Dance?"

As the opening date of our next production comes ever closer, the cast of Congleton Musical Theatre’s “the King and I” at Daneside Theatre are moving into the final phase of rehearsals, with music, moves and dance all coming together for that final polish needed to put on a superb performance. A large group of children, some of whom have never been on stage are excited to be playing the King’s children.
In the background, scenery is being built and painted by dedicated backstage staff, and lighting and sound planned, all of which will bring the production to life.
