Set in the 1860s in the exotic capital city of Bangkok, The King and I, according to Theater of the Stars, "is the timeless love story between a powerful and stubborn king and a determined governess named Anna."
The Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II musical, based on the life of Anna Leonowens as well as Margaret Landon's 1944 novel "Anna and the King of Siam," includes classics such as "Hello Young Lovers," "I Whistle A Happy Tune," "Shall We Dance?" and "Getting To Know You."
