The seminar, titled "Creating The Magic," is part of Midtown Management Group's "Inside Broadway" series.

Philips and Murphy will join seven other King And I cast members at the Neil Simon Theatre on West 52nd Street, to sing "Something Wonderful," "A Puzzlement," "Whistle A Happy Tune" and other Rodgers & Hammerstein King songs, while the kids also get a demonstration of scenery changes, lighting and sound.
