The Emperor's New Clothes
By Karen Boettcher-Tate, based on the tale by Hans Christian Andersen.
Directed by Ann Holmes
"Emperor" is a delightfully silly show, offering an important message about courage, and a reminder that caring for others is more important than what's in our closets!
From the publishers: "The kingdom of Glump has been taxed to distraction ever since their emperor became a pampered clothes horse with a lack of taste! Not only is he an egotistical hypochondriac, he has three "lovely" daughters who are quickly becoming chips off the old blockhead. The emperor and his family are so busy mismatching their wardrobe, the rest of the kingdom is in a shambles. Enter two con artists who devise an ingenious plan for fleecing the emperor. Their pitch: a magic cloth which appears invisible to people unworthy of their position. Naturally, everyone chooses to "see" the magic cloth, until the innocent candor of a child "reveals all." The emperor is shamed into reforming his leadership role in society, and his spoiled daughters learn a valuable lesson in humility."
