Let there be reign for the King and I

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS from the cast of The King and I were celebrating after being selected to star in the show at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh.

Hundreds of hopefuls auditioned for the stage musical earlier this year. It was the first time the theatre has included local children in the show.

The lucky youngsters will now be put through rehearsals before the show opens next month.

The King and I stars Ramon Tikaram and is directed by Curve Theatre’s Paul Kerryson, who has directed Chicago and Sweeney Todd.

The show will run from December 14 to January 7.
