OPEN auditions are being held to find a cast – adults and children – for a spectacular production of The King And I at Chequer Mead Theatre, East Grinstead.
The classic musical has captured the hearts and minds of millions with its charming story of the British governess brought into the court of Siam to tutor the king's many children. Her Western sensibilities clash with the ruler's Eastern ways but over time, Anna and the king stop trying to change each other and begin to understand one another.
The unique love story is told with one of the most glorious and unforgettable scores ever written. The much-loved songs and sweeping melodies from the show include: The March Of The Siamese Children, Shall We Dance, I Whistle A Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers and the unforgettable Getting To Know You.
The King And I is produced by Company of Friends for Chequer Mead Theatre with all proceeds going to the seat refurbishment fund.
Auditions are being held at Chequer Mead tomorrow and the production is being staged from Tuesday, August 6 to Saturday, August 10.
