Down on his luck in the suburbs, John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos. For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor…Book your pre-theatre meals for this event in THE PLACE restaurant and reserve seats at the Theatre.

It would be good to know if this might be of interest to our audience. If you might be interested please let us know by email to alandavidfox@live.co.uk , or by phone to 01694 722209.

THE KING & I

29th November 2018

We are excited to bring this critically-acclaimed musical to our theatre cinema screen

Making their West End debuts are the original Broadway stars; reprising her Tony Award-winning performance as ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ (The Sunday Times), Kelli O’Hara (Anna), Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King).

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With one of the finest scores ever written including; Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You and Shall We Dance. Featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre.

After the huge success of the Lincoln Center Theater's production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I, the production extended its engagement for a final three weeks at London's iconic Palladium, where this cinema broadcast was filmed. 

You should book early for this showing, as we expect a large take up. Check out what pre-theatre delights are to be offered.
