Discover the Unconventional Relationship of a King and a Schoolteacher in This Classic

The Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts is a center for professional and community artistry in downtown Jacksonville. A cornerstone of the downtown area, the Times-Union Center is committed to supporting a wide range of entertainment experiences at the highest level of professionalism. On Tuesday, November 13th, we will be showing Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I!

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 Leonowens. Anna Leonowens is a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. The King and I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).

Two worlds collide in this “breathtaking and exquisite” musical, based on the 2015 Tony Award winning Lincoln Center Theater production. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting to Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.”

We look forward to seeing you at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts!
