An interactive production of Arthurian legend the Sword in the Stone promises to be a right royal treat later this month.

Ten children will be asked to play minor roles while the whole audience is expected to play the part of the chorus.

Image Musical Theatre's latest family participation musical follows the life of Arthur, a young squire destined to become King.

Epsom Playhouse says: "Guided by Merlin he has many adventures culminating in him successfully pulling the sword from the stone and unwittingly fulfilling the legend's prophecy.

"With beautiful costumes, enchanting sets, magical puppets and wonderful music by Robert Hyman this show will continue Image's tradition of providing the best touring theatre for primary age schoolchildren and their families."
