Theatre for Children Inc

The Producers of The Three Billy Goats Gruff present:

The Emperor’s New Clothes

Would you stop at nothing to get some new clothes?!
Written and directed by Sarah Delahunty
28th September – 12th October
4 Moncrieff St., Mt. Victoria

The vain Emperor is bored with his wardrobe, he is restless. He wants something new, something exciting – something that is so fantastic it has never been seen before!

Well, be careful what you wish for... when a new tailor moves to town he has exactly the kind of adventurous outfit the Emperor wants. It is so fantastic that only fantastically clever people can see it. Not wanting to seem a fool, the Emperor marvels at the cloth, when in actual fact he can see nothing at all!

Is the Emperor a fool? Is the tailor a trickster? And if everybody is only pretending to see the clothes – what will happen when he has to parade them down the main street?!?

With the usual fun and songs to sing The Emperor’s New Clothes is the most exciting adventure to be had this spring – make sure you stop at nothing to come and see it!

Tickets $10, Groups of 10+ $9.00 each, Children under 2 Free
$7 Special Opening Preview, Saturday 28th September
