Flamboyant Egyptian musical comes to Covenant

Kootenay Home Educators present Tut Tut tonight and tomorrow.

Marot Sammartino plays an Egyptian beggar who trades places with King Tut in the Kootenay Home Educators production of Tut Tut. He’s seen here with the royal tutor played by Madelyn Wiedrick. Meanwhile the displaced royal struggles to survive on the streets.

Lydia Tait, Jasmine Pusey and Centonaya Sammartino lead a camel onstage via skis in the Kootenay Home Educators’ production of Tut Tut.

Max Thomson plays the bored Egyptian royal who trades places with a lowly pauper. During a dress rehearsal on Monday, Virginia Tait refused to sell her fish to the disguised royal, giving him a lesson in the harsh realities of life.

The musical production is directed by Kait Tait and runs this week at Covenant Church on Stanley St. It will play tonight at 6 p.m. and tomorrow at 4 p.m.
