Smash-hit musical sensation The King & I comes to The Lowry in Salford in January 2024!
The production stars Helen George as Anna, ahead of a West End run at London’s Dominion Theatre. Helen is known to millions as Trixie Franklin in Call The Midwife, which returns for a new series in 2024.
Set in 1860s Bangkok, The King and I 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.
Helen George said: “I am so delighted to continue to play the formidable Anna Leonowens in this incredible production of The King and I am thrilled to bring the show to Eastbourne and Salford ahead of the West End season. I think it so important to bring big lavish West End productions to the regions – Salford and Eastbourne are in for a real treat!”
