Not everyone who signs up for Act Two will be cast in Act Two.

Tut Tut is inspired by the life of "King Tut" (the ten-year-old who became King of Egypt) with a touch of Mark Twain's "The Prince and the Pauper". The story begins with a young Prince Tut who is bored of the royal life, so he wanders into the streets of the city looking for adventure. Suddenly he meets a peasant who looks just like him! They concoct a plan to trade places for three days. But when the King dies and Prince Tut must ascend the throne, their plan goes terribly awry.
