Open auditions announced for rumoured West End transfer of The King & I

Open auditions have been announced for the rumoured West End transfer of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King & I. 

Whilst exact details of the musical's London transfer have yet to be revealed, The Stage have published information for an upcoming open dance call. Click here for more.

Directed by Bartlett Sher, the Lincoln Centre's production has choreography by Christopher Gattelli - based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins - and set design by Michael Yeargan.

It was recently reported that Broadway icon Kelli O'Hara will reprise her Tony winning performance as Anna Leonowens in The King & I's West End transfer which could open in late 2016 or early 2017.

O'Hara's Broadway credits include: The Bridges of Madison County, Nice Work If You Can Get It, South Pacific, The Pajama Game, The Light in the Piazza, Dracula the Musical, Sweet Smell of Success, Follies and Jekyll & Hyde.

Please note that open auditions do not mean The King & I's West End transfer is confirmed. Open auditions were previously held for the West End transfer of Newsies which never materialised.
