About G2K The King and I

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. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West and he seeks Anna's assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story.


Performance opportunities for developing voices

DownStage Center produces several "low tech" shows each season for which the key word is "nurturing." DSC programming features a "no tears" workshop style audition, a rehearsal schedule tailored to the needs of our youngest actors, and performance opportunities in small venues just right for developing voices. Additionally, alumni and MainStage performers are used as mentors and in production roles. Students ages 7 and up participate in DSC shows.

The DownStage Center Education Division offers year round camps, and classes for students ages 3 to 18. Musical Theatre Goes to School is our DSC outreach program.
