The King and I is based on the true story of a young, widowed English governess, Anna Leonowens and her son Louis. In 1860 Anna is invited to the palace of Siam to teach the King’s 58 children English and western culture.
Anna knows very little of King Mongkut, apart from the fact that his people revere him as a god. She is aware of an East vs. West prejudice against the King, but soon realises that these views are more than matched by the ruler’s own preconceptions about the West.
Anna is willing to stand up to injustices such as slavery, despite the risk of potential consequences. A mutual respect and friendship grows between the King and Anna, who despite having strong personalities, often come head to head. There are even glimpses of a possible romantic link between them.
The musical includes many famous songs such as, I Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, Hello Young Lovers and Shall We Dance
