Catch the critically acclaimed The King and I at the King's Theatre in Glasgow this month

An unmissable production of Rodger and Hammerstein’s The King and I will run at the King’s later this month as part of a UK tour.

Direct from the London Palladium, the critically acclaimed Lincoln Centre Theatre Production, opens on Tuesday 28 January until Saturday 8 February.

The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre and is considered to be is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

Performing as Anna, fresh from her West End success, will be Annalene Beechey and reprising his critically acclaimed USA national tour performance as The King will be Darren Lee.

Annalene said: “I absolutely love playing Anna, she is a dream role for any actress. I’m delighted to bring this wonderful production and our glorious King to Scotland!”

Darren said: “After playing the King all over the USA this role has such a special place in my heart, so
to be able to tour the beautiful UK and see so many of your incredible cities like Glasgow is really
exciting for me.”

The production also boasts a company of over 50 world‐class performers, a full scale orchestra and
classic songs such as I Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You and Shall We Dance.
