The Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers.
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.
In this adaptation, the content has been edited to better suit younger attention spans, but all the magic and beauty of the original 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 its production.
