Win tickets to see The King And I screening at Clevedon’s Curzon
PUBLISHED: 18:00 15 March 2019
Cinema fans can watch the popular revived musical of a British schoolteacher and the King of Siam.
The King And I: From The London Palladium will be shown at the Curzon cinema next month.
Annalene Beechey and Jose Llana star in the multi-award-winning production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I.
The original musical was hailed as one of the greatest musicals from the golden age of musicals which was adored by the public and critics alike.
It has one of the finest scores written, including Whistle A Happy Tune, Getting To Know You and Shall We Dance and features a company of more than 50 world-class performers and a full-scale orchestra.
The story, penned by composer Richard Rodgers and dramatist Oscar Hammerstein II is based on the novel Anna And The King Of Siam by Margaret Landon which is derived from the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the early 1860s.
The musical follows school teacher Anna who is hired as part of the King’s drive to modernise his country.
The relationship between the King and Anna is marked by conflict and an unspoken love.
The King And I: From The London Palladium will be shown at the Curzon cinema, in Old Church Road, on April 4 at 7pm.
Tickets, priced £9-11 are available at www.curzon.org.uk
