The award winning ELODS proudly presents The King and I

Rodgers & Hammerstein's highly celebrated musical set in 1860's Bangkok tells the moving story of the experience of Anna, a British school teacher hired as a governess as part of the King of Siam's idea to modernise his country.

A celebration of love in all its forms, we see the desperation of forbidden love; the love of a neglected wife; and although on the surface we witness an amusing conflict between Anna and the King as East meets West, love creeps up on them, which neither can admit or accept. A timeless classic, not to be missed, from the company that brought the Wyllyotts Theatre recent productions of The Drowsy Chaperone, Parade and Crazy For You
