The award-winning Lichfield Operatic Society return to Lichfield Garrick this week with their latest show The King And I. Running from 21 to 25 April, the company last performed the show back in 2003 and it was their first performance in the Lichfield Garrick after it opened.
Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical was thrown into the spotlight when Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr took on the leading roles in the film. The show delights audiences with well-known songs including Getting to Know You, Shall We Dance?, I Whistle a Happy Tune and countless others.
It tells the tale of the strong-willed, widowed English teacher who travels to Siam in the 1860s to be a governess to the many children of the King.
Playing the role of widow, Mrs Anna, is Dawn Welch and the King of Siam is played by Jordan Adams who have both been members of the society for a number of years. Julie Mallaband is directing, with accomplished musical director Jack Hopkins and choreographer Jess Lambert. With two teams of children playing Anna's son and the children of the King, the show will thrill Lichfield audiences.
Tickets are now very limited, so make sure to book as soon as you can. For more information and to get your tickets click here or call Lichfield Garrick box office on 01543 412 121.
