The King and I comes to town

The Carrollwood Cultural Center presents the Rogers & Hammerstein classic musical, The King and I.

This production will include talent from the Center's Broadway Kids, the Center's Community Chorus and Band, as well as the newly formed MAS Community Theatre.

East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination.

It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives.
