Theatre for Young Audiences Version
Two con-men "play the palace" in this family-friendly adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's well-known satirical tale.
The establishment that has become synonymous with theatre for young audiences, Prince Street Players, puts their trademark breezy flair on the classic tale - THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES (Prince Street Players Version)! Designed specifically for young audiences, this version is a charming exploration of the dangers of vanity, with a host of
hilarious characters including a brassy, tap-dancing bugle-playing
Two con-men, Mr. Stitch and Mr. Sew, wreak havoc at Wits Ends Palace when they present the Emperor with a
special gift: an exquisitely beautiful "magic" suit of clothes, invisible to all but the wisest of men. The dangers of
vanity are addressed hilariously with a host of delightful characters, as Emperor Maxmilian the Most dons his most
expensive, least visible outfit. It looks like itís up to the
lowliest of the Emperorís staff, Chester the Jester, to imbue his
highness with some common sense.
THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES (Prince Street Players Version)ís small technical and cast requirements ensure
it will fit perfectly onto any size stage and into nearly any size budget. As with all Prince Street Players' shows, the
materials for THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES (Prince Street Players' Version) include spectacularly detailed
costume designs, prop descriptions, and stage notes should they be needed by the creative team.

The original Broadway production of Five Guys Named Moe featured a conga line led by the cast that got most of the audience involved dancing through the aisles of the theatre and out into the bar for intermission.
