Music and Lyrics presents Curve Theatre Leicester’s production of RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S
THE KING AND I
Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein
Following its creation and hugely successful run at Curve in Christmas 2010, we proudly welcome home our spectacular production of The King and I, directed by Paul Kerryson, for one week only, as part of its UK tour. The heart-warming story of the British governess brought to the court of Siam to tutor the King’s many children is told using one of the most beautiful scores ever written with sweeping melodies such as The March of the Siamese Children, Shall We Dance, I Whistle A Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers and the unforgettable Getting To Know You.
**Celebrate the return of The King and I with us and book a pre-show meal for just £9.95 per person**

The King and I stars Ramon Tikaram as The King of Siam, whose West End credits include Bombay Dreams and TV’s This Life, and Josefina Gabrielle as Anna, whose musical highlights include Sweet Charity and the lead in Oklahoma! at the National Theatre.
