The King and I opens in Chatfield


Mon, Aug 8th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

The costumes, the make-up, the scenery, the props . . .

These four elements, along with the performers themselves, are only a few of the hundreds of components that come together to make a brilliant musical production. But every one of these pieces are highly visible, and as they are introduced through the rehearsal process, each generates a great boost in enthusiasm in everyone concerned.

The scenery and costumes light up the stage with bright colors and exotic design. The props add to the authenticity of the historic period. The make-up, last to come, will enhance the charm and character of every one of the 45 performers.

For a great musical production, it is impossible to top the monumental successes of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The King and I is one of their greatest, and has been performed countless times over the decades. Wits' End Theatre is proud to bring this complex, colorful and poignant musical to Chatfield for the first time. It is the 41st in the unbroken line of Western Days Musicals, the eighth for Wits' End Theatre.

The King and I is being presented at the historic (and air-conditioned) Potter Auditorium at Highway 52 and Fifth Street in Chatfield, home of the new Chatfield Center for the Arts. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. August 10, 11 and 12. There is also a matinee at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, following the Western Days Parade, a great time for those who don't want to stay out late or drive home after dark, or who are already in town Saturday for all the Western Days attractions.

Tickets are available at Sunshine Foods, also on Highway 52 in Chatfield (formerly Skippy's). Reserved seats are $13, balcony, $9. You may call Sunshine Foods for will-call tickets at 507-867-4272. Tickets will also be available at Potter on show days.

Wits' End Theatre and the Chatfield Center for the Arts invite all to come, see and hear this colorful and exciting production. After, the most important component of every show is the AUDIENCE!
