The former mayor of Ely is encouraging people to "go and welcome back live theatre" by seeing KD Theatre's "wonderful" family musical.

With performances tomorrow and Sunday in the Dean's Garden at Ely Cathedral, the company will stage ‘HONK!’, which is a reimaging of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Ugly Duckling’.

The musical, which is directed and choreographed by KD founders Daniel Bell and Katherine Hickmott, features a cast of professional performers and live musicians.

Former mayor Mike Rouse said: "Stiles and Drewe's show is wonderfully melodic.

"There are so many good songs, but all of them really need singing by every cast member and boy, does this young professional cast deliver.
