The Emperor's New Threads
April 21 - June 3, 2017
Based on the story by Hans Christian Anderson, adapted by Frances Limoncelli
Music and lyrics by George Howe
A groovy ‘60s take on the famous tale! The Emperor is beloved as a chic trendsetter, but his ridiculous fashion tax is bankrupting the country. Determined to be a hero, one young girl travels to the royal palace to confront the superficial ruler and teach him a lesson about what really matters. But she is soon faced with a decision: should she save "His Royal Groovyness" from a world of embarrassment?
