Young Sisters Get Boys Haircuts And A Role In TUTS' Miss Saigon

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.
