The timeless classic, The King and I, celebrated for its numerous accolades, has already enchanted audiences throughout the UK and is set to begin its West End run at Dominion Theatre on January 20, 2024!

The King and I cast and creatives

Under the guidance of Tony Award-winning director Bart Sher, renowned for his work on celebrated Broadway shows like "South Pacific" and "My Fair Lady," The King and I boasts a distinguished creative team. This classic musical features the exceptional combination of Oscar Hammerstein II's book and lyrics and Richard Rodgers' music, with orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennett, musical supervision by Stephen Ridley, and casting direction by James Orange CDG.

The talented ensemble stars Helen George, known for her beloved portrayal of Trixie on BBC One's "Call The Midwife," in the pivotal role of Anna, and is joined by Darren Lee as The King of Siam.

A true reflection of the classic age

In the early 1860s, after the recent loss of her husband, Anna Leonowens embarks on a journey from England to the distant land of Bangkok, Siam. Motivated by the desire for fresh experiences, Anna agrees to take on the role of a schoolteacher for the royal children of the King of Siam.

In a world where their backgrounds and perspectives sharply contrast, Anna and the King, both strong-willed, grapple to establish common ground. The King aspires to introduce Western education, while Anna contends with unfamiliar customs and traditions.

As their relationship deepens, both Anna and the King gain valuable insights into understanding and respect. They come to realize that love can transcend even the most profound differences. Beyond their spirited exchanges of differing opinions, a sincere love story unfolds, creating one of the most endearing relationships ever to grace the stage.

The King and I will enchant your heart while imparting meaningful lessons in empathy and mutual respect. Make sure to book your tickets in advance!
