Two Houston sisters, Audrey and Emma Kim, ages 4 and 6 respectively, sacrificed their long hair the other day in order to play the part of Tam, the son who is born to the main character Kim in Miss Saigon.
The girls, both students at Theatre Under the Stars' Humphries School, were alternately in high spirits and somewhat sad after their hair cuts were completed, but seemed to bounce back completely once they were out of the salon chair.
To see the girls' full transformation, view the slideshow.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
