X Factor finalist Lucie Jones set for Edinburgh Fringe Festival

X Factor finalist Lucie Jones is swapping screen for stage with her role in The Prodigals

Welsh X Factor 2009 finalist Lucie Jones will take to the stage at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival in a brand new musical: The Prodigals.

Lucie, from Pentrych, made a name for herself when she appeared before the X Factor judges to sing her version of Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You.

But she’ll be swapping screen for stage when The Prodigals, penned by Joe Harmston and Ray Goudie, plays the Debating Hall at the Gilded Balloon Teviot from Wednesday 3 until Monday 29 August.

One son leads a high-risk life of excess and success with his band, while the other seeks security within his father’s Scottish regiment. Like any father, Colonel Luke Gibson must watch his sons make their own choices but when one life goes disastrously wrong what will the consequences be for him, his sons and the regiment?

With kilts swirling from the stirring regimental scenes and bodies jumping to the latest pulsating UK sounds, The Prodigals promises ‘high-energy choreography, stunning songs and a roller-coaster story of modern life’.

The cast also includes Aaron Sidwell from EastEnders, Hayley Ainsley, Emma Franklin, Heather Scott-Martin, Simeon John-Wake and Sarah Wilkie.
