Announcing The Hi-Liners 2015 DownStage Center Winter Show: Rodgers & Hammerstein’s ‘The King and I,’ starting Friday, Jan. 9 at the Renton Civic Theatre.
“East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story.”Rated G: Approved for all audiences. Music by Richard Rodgers, Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Performance Schedule:
