Getting To Know... The King and I
7 Dec

Announcing GETTING TO KNOW... THE KING AND I by R&H and iTheatrics

Created by Rodgers & Hammerstein with iTheatrics, Getting To Know... The King and I -- along with the entire Getting To Know Collection -- has been adapted to better suit younger performers, but all the elements that make this show a classic are still in place. You will be enchanted by the timeless story and the dazzling score, while at the same time learning about the theatre and the ins and outs of putting on a production.

EVERY GETTING TO KNOW PRODUCTION FEATURES:
  • Kid-tested, age-appropriate content
  • Keys perfect for young voices
  • Vocal and Accompaniment tracks
  • A Guide to Staging and Choreography DVD
  • A fully annotated Production Guide

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.

Songs featured in Getting To Know... The King and I: "I Whistle A Happy Tune," "Getting To Know You," "Something Wonderful," "Shall We Dance?" and more Rodgers & Hammerstein classics!
