Western culture holds court in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I, which the Hayswood Theatre will present starting tomorrow night.

The King and I will take place July 18, 19, 25, and 26 and Aug. 1 and 2 at 8 p.m. each night. Matinees, meanwhile, will occur July 20 and 27 and Aug. 3 at 2 p.m. each day. All performances occur at the Hayswood Theatre, located at 115. S. Capitol Ave. in Corydon, IN.

Tickets for each show are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors 65 and over, and $12 for students 17 and under. Due to limited seating, reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling 888-738-2137. 

Ancient customs and Western culture meet and clash in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I. An English schoolteacher is brought in to teach the princes and princesses of Siam. At the schoolteacher's request, a big European-style dinner and ball is thrown, bringing out the highest-ranking men and women from Europe to Siam. However, constant clashes with ancient traditions, specifically with the king, may derail Siam's future.

Following The King and I, Hayswood Theatre will open its 2014-15 theater season with Steel Magnolias. Auditions will take place this weekend, and the show will happen in October.
