Unionville High School Presents: THE KING & I



March 15th, 16th & 17th at 7:00pm
Unionville High School

Unionville High School is proud to present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic Broadway
musical, The King & I.

A moving and radiant tale of East meets West, The King & I will be brought to life for the community with an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stagecraft.

It is 1862 when newly widowed Anna Leonowens and her son, Louis, sail from their native
England for Bangkok, Siam (now Thailand). Anna set her sights on a new adventure and
accepted a position as the schoolteacher for the King of Siam’s many children and wives.
The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by rulers in the West, so he asks for Anna’s
assistance to change his image, if not his ways. Anna and the King struggle to find common
ground. While both keep a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the
King eventually teach each other about understanding, respect, and love that can transcend
the greatest of differences.

Online ticket sales begin February 26th at www.showtix4u.com for $12. Tickets at the door
