Rehearsals are underway for our next production, “The King and I”, due to be performed Tuesday 27th November – Saturday 1St December at 7:15pm with a Saturday matinee at 2:15pm.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. The King is determined to usher Siam into the modern world, and he thinks Western education can be a part of that – yet, Anna is horrified at first by many of the traditions that he holds dear. Anna and the King struggle to find common ground. Both Anna and the King keep a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, yet teach each other about understanding, respect, and love that can transcend the greatest of differences.

With one of the finest scores ever written including; “Whistle a Happy Tune”,”Getting to Know You”, and “Shall We Dance”, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre.

This is the first time the full society will come together to perform a musical since the devastating floods of 2015; please come along and support us if you can.
