UNIONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS: THE KING & I March 15TH, 16TH & 17TH at Unionville High School 7:00pm

Unionville High School is proud to present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic Broadway musical, The King & I, with performances on March 15th, 16th and 17th at 7:00pm.  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 are $14 adults/$12 students and senior citizens. Performances will be at Unionville High School, 750 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
