First casting news for new tour of The King and I

Initial casting has been revealed for new tour of The King and I, which kicks off next February at Canterbury

Helen George (Call the Midwife, The Woman in White) will play the role of Anna Leonowens in the new tour, saying today: "Theatre is my first love, and I am so excited to be returning to the stage for this beautiful, majestic production of The King and I.I was blown away when I saw Bartlett Sher's staging of this wonderful show, so I can't wait to work with him and the rest of the creative team to bring this timeless story back to the stage next year. Anna is such a strong, passionate and determined character, and I'm going to relish bringing her to life every night, as well as giving audiences all over the UK the chance to see this peerless Broadway and West End musical right on their doorstep."

Further casting for the tour is to be revealed.
