The King and I - Audition Registration

Chequer Mead presents "The King and I" this summer and is looking for a cast to perform for this charity fundraising production.

“The King and I” is based on the true story of Anna Leonowens, who became governess in the 1860s to the King of Siam’s many children. Her western sensibilities clash with the ruler’s Eastern ways but over time, Anna and the King stop trying to change each other and begin to understand one another. The show is a Rodgers and Hammerstein masterpiece that truly stands the test of time. Full of classic moments: Anna tries to teach the King to dance the Polka (Shall We Dance), endearing moments with children in the classroom (Getting to Know You) - Full of emotion and drama, with beautiful costumes and a spectacular Thai ballet.

Produced by Company of Friends for Chequer Mead. All successful applicants will be expected to pay a show fee of £30.

Auditions are on Sunday 7th April 2013, with juniors from 10am and principles and adult ensemble at 2pm.

Rehearsals are every Sunday, starting on the 30th June. Show week runs 6th - 10th August 2013 with technical and dress rehearsals on the 4th and 5th August.
