The national tour of the The King and I, based on the 2015 Tony Award winning Lincoln Center Theater Production, will make its Portland premiere at Keller Auditorium for eight performances from Jan. Tuesday, Jan. 8 through Sunday, Jan. 13 as part of the Broadway in Portland series.

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.”

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, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
