DALLAS – Hey, you sitting at home wondering what to do? Or how to romance your significant other? Well, take them to see Rodgers & Hammerstein’s famous musical, The King and I at Music Hall at Fair Park. It plays through April 5.
“I think the music is so beautiful, and I think the characters are really memorable,” said Stephanie Lo who plays Eliza in the musical.
“The ballet is a great piece of musical theater choreography and it’s really unique.”
Not all the performers are from New York. Some of them are from right here and landed a role in the musical.
“They were like, we would love Rylan to be in the show,” said Rylan Ramirez, a second grader from Rockwell. “This is really exciting and I’m honored to be in it.”
“I’m playing one of the twins,” Francesca Nelle, 6th grader from Dallas, said. “I really like singing parts of it, especially ‘Getting to Know You.’ I have a few lines compared to other people, but I’m just glad to be a part of it.”
Hey, you want to be a part of it? On April 4th they’ll be hosting a dance workshop put on by the Dallas Summer Musicals Academy for ages 10 and up.
“We’re really excited to work with the kids and show them fun combos from the ballet,” Lo said.
It’s $40 and you can register at academyatdsm.org.
Well, what are you waiting for? Here’s your chance at becoming a big star. Or just being able to boogie on the dance floor.
