The King And I: Another Eminent Theatre Production From Resorts World Manila

Along with Resorts World Manila’s incessant support for Philippine theater culture as well as the championing of world-class Filipino talents, comes another forthcoming musical spectacle, The King and I.

To unveil the highly-anticipated all-Filipino produced musical, a Premiere Night was held last September 14, Friday evening, at the state-of-the-art Newport Performing Arts Theater. The by-invitation event was attended by VVIPs from various private and public sectors together with distinguished media personalities and members of the press. 

Guests were treated to a full view of the celebrated Rodgers and Hammerstein classic where they got enthralled by the bravado of theatre legend Leo Tavarro Valdez as he portrayed the character of ‘King Mongkut’ of Siam, and charmed by the engaging disposition of ‘Anna’, played by stage icon Monique Wilson. The prolific performances of its all-talented cast, including the refreshing duet of budding young actors Anton Posadas and James Gabriel Ketcher, who plays ‘Prince Chulalongkorn’ and ‘Louis Leonowens’ respectively, also delighted the audience.

Another must-see in Resorts World Manila’s third theatre offering are the complete set of costumes designed by Aksana Sidarava and fashion icon Rajo Laurel, the grandiose stage design, the bewitching dance interpretation of The Small of Uncle Thomas by The  Philippine Ballet Theater and the haunting live musical score of the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Rodel Colmenar.

Sing-along with the famous “Getting to Know You” and “Shall We Dance” starting September 15, as Newport Performing Arts Theater opens its grand stage to the astounding performances of The King and I’s all-Filipino casts. 

Tickets are available at the Resorts World Manila Box Office and all TicketWorld outlets. For inquiries and information on available show schedules, visit or call the Tourist/Visitor Hotline at (632)836.6333
