The King and I

Aug 4, 2011 7:30pm

Aug 6, 2011 7:30pm

The Paramount Theater
A smash hit since it debuted on Broadway and was then made immortal by the film starring Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr, Rodger and Hammerstein's classic The King and I will make you want to “Whistle a happy tune” and ask “Shall we dance”! This production is led by stage director, Baayork Lee, herself the original five year old Princess Ying on Broadway, and by conductor, Jon Kalbfleisch who, for twenty years, has been the music director of the prestigious Signature Theater in Washington , D.C.

Based on the true story of a British governess who travels to Siam in the 1860's to help the King modernize his country, The King and I is the story of the cultural misunderstanding between East and West, and the love that neither Anna nor the King is able to express. With exotic costumes and accompanied by a full orchestra, the talented cast is joined by twenty-five local children. There are only five performances, so don't miss this memorable show for the entire family!

Gioacchino Rossini's The Barber of Seville remains as fresh as when it was written two hundred years ago.
