The Tony Award-winning revival the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic musical The King and I makes its exclusive New Hampshire debut at the Park Theatre’s River Street Theatre in Jaffrey on Thursday, Nov. 29 and Tuesday, Dec. 4. Each day will have a 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. screening.

The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I comes to cinemas in this unmissable event recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium Theatre. Reprising her Tony Award-winning role, Kelli O’Hara (Anna) takes to the stage alongside Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) in a powerhouse performance. Also returning to her Tony Award-winning role as Lady Thiang is Ruthie Ann Miles. Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. With one of the finest scores ever written including “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Shall We Dance,” and featuring a company of more than 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre – it is the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals.

Tickets for The King and I are $15 each. A discounted ticket of $13 is available for seniors, active military, students, and teachers. Group sales and private screening parties are also available.
