THE KING AND I Opens The Lake Worth Playhouse's 60th Season Tonight, 10/4
The Lake Worth Playhouse's 60th Season begins tonight with the opening of The King and I.
In this romantic musical, the boy-meets-girl plot is woven into the historical context of the British Imperialism in Asia. It is the story of a clash between cultures and the dynamics between Great Britain and The Orient.
The King of Siam invites an English governess to teach the children of his many wives about the modern world. Yet he himself resists changing his traditional role as the benevolent patriarchal dictator until the bold young governess wins his heart and his respect.
The King and I runs through October 21 with performances Thursday - Saturday at 8pm and Saturday - Sunday at 2pm. Tickets range from $23-$35 and can be purchased through the Lake Worth Playhouse Box Office at 561-586-6410 or online at www.lakeworthplayhouse.org.
Lake Worth Playhouse is located at 713 Lake Ave in Downtown Lake Worth. Valet Parking is available for $5. Street and lot parking is also available.
