The King and I coming to Chatfield this summer


Wed, Apr 6th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

The King and I is coming to Chatfield this summer for the first time in the history of Western Days. This great Rodgers & Hammerstein production is loaded with memorable music, colorful scenery, beautiful costumes and energetic performers, including many children.

Familiar songs include Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, Hello Young Lovers, We Kiss in a Shadow, Shall we Dance, and Something Wonderful. The musical is based on the true story recorded by British governess Anna Leonowens who was hired in 1862 to teach English and "modern, scientific ways" to the children and wives of the King of Siam.

Auditions are on Monday, May 30 (Memorial Day), and Tuesday, May 31, at Potter Auditorium, Highway 52 and Fifth Street in Chatfield. Check- in time is 6:30 p.m. (Parents, bring your younger children early so they don't have to stay late.) More instructions will follow, such as type of music to prepare for tryouts for singing roles.

Watch for further announcements in this newspaper or check at witsendtheatre.org on the web. Information will also be posted on Facebook, or you may e-mail witsendtheatre@gmail.com.

Performances are August 10, 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, August 13, at 5:00 p.m. at the historic (and now air-conditioned) Potter Auditorium. Tickets will go on sale July 5 at Sunshine Foods (formerly Skippy's) in Chatfield on Highway 52. With this perennial favorite, Wits' End Theatre continues its successful tradition of presenting challenging, exciting and ever-popular musicals for area residents. This will be the 41st consecutive year of Western Days musicals, and the 8th for Wits' End Theatre.
