Sam will be playing the role of the King of Siam at the New Theatre in Oxford on October 7th at 2:30pm. Those interested in attending can purchase tickets for any shows on the tour via the production website.

Note that this does not mean Sam Yo is leaving Peloton. Rather, he’s choosing to use some of his time off to be in the musical. Note that Peloton Studios London is closed through September 22 for renovation and maintenance.

Sam performed in London’s West End beginning in 2000. He was in the ​​London Palladium’s production of The King & I, Aladdin, Mulan, Anything Goes, and more. He left the theater in 2018 before joining Peloton in 2019.

Tremendous congratulations to Sam!
