‘The King and I’ sets the stage

Denton Community Theatre will bring to the stage its production of The King and I beginning Friday. The show will run through April 14 at the Campus Theatre, located at 214 W. Hickory St.

The King and I is a musical written in the 1950s by renowned duo Richard Rodgers and and Oscar Hammerstein II. It’s based on the true experiences of an English widow who travels to Siam, now known as Thailand, with her young son in the 1860s to live and teach the children of the royal family. The woman is also sought in changing the king’s image. The musical focuses on how the woman and the king come to know one another as individuals.

Notable music numbers from the show include “Shall We Dance” and “I Whistle a Happy Tune.”

Denton Community Theatre’s production of the The King and I is directed by Pete Kelly.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and April 11-13 and 2 p.m. Sunday and April 13.
