KING AND I
RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S AWARD WINNING
PRODUCTION OF “THE KING AND I”
COMING TO THE BROWARD CENTER
Set in the 1860's Bangkok, the Musical tells the story of newly widowed Anna an adventurous Englishwoman and her son, Louis, set sail from their native England for Bangkok, Siam (now Thailand). She was hired to serve as governess and tutor to King Mongkut’s many children.
Although Anna has had many quarrels with the dictator, considered to be a barbarian by rulers of the West. The King is determined to usher Siam into the modern world, and believes a Western education can be a part of that. Anna is horrified at first by the many traditions he holds dear and struggle to find common ground.
Anna and the King teach each other about understanding, respect, and love that can transcend the greatest differences. The two eventually fall in love, and her influence on the King helps to democratize the country. This unconventional and tempestuous relationship continues to develop between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, the British schoolteacher.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I is a moving, radiant story of East meets West, opens in the Broward Center’s Au-Rene Theatre on November 20th, and runs to December 2, 2018.

DR. SEUSS STORIES COME ALIVE IN
“SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL” AT THE
PEMBROKE THEATRE OF THE PERFORMING ARTS
Based on the stories of Dr. Seuss and one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life our favorite Dr. Seuss characters in this production for all ages.
The works of Dr. Seuss weaves together his most famous tales and characters from at least fifteen of his books. The show follows the adventures of Horton, an elephant, who one day hears voices, coming from a speck of dust. He soon discovers that within this tiny speck exists the smallest planet in the universe! On this tiny planet live a tiny race of creatures known as the Whos.
Although ridiculed by the other animals in the Jungle of Nool for believing in something you cannot see, Horton stubbornly persists in his belief that the Whos exist. Traveling everywhere from the Jungle of Nool to McEligott’s Pool, some of the characters fall in love, some have desperate adventures, and some even save the world. Seussical is a sung-through musical which means that the entire show is comprised of music. There is very little “speaking,” and most of the lines and dialogues are sung.
Lead roles are: Cat in the Hat-A spunky, fun- loving narrator of the show who leads Jojo into an adventurous world and serves as his guide. Horton the Elephant -A sweet and kind creature who tries to protect all of the Whos. Jojo, a young boy from Whoville whose thoughts often get him in trouble, Gertrude McFuzz- An adorable bird-girl who is in love with Horton and very conscious of her one-feathered tail, and Mayzie La Bird-a lively and energetic, sassy and bold, bird-girl who has the biggest tail of them all! All that, in addition to Kangaroos and Monkeys!
Tickets are $17, $27 and $32 on sale for performances now on stage through November 18, 2018, evenings at 8 p.m., matinees at 2 p.m. For more information call the box office at 954-37-4884, located at 17195 Sheridan Street, Pembroke Pines. Visit online at email@example.com. *Suitable for all ages.
