School Time Theater: The Emperor’s New Clothes
The classic fable with new music is brought to life in this rendition of Hans Christian Andersen’s story of greed and privilege. When it comes to fashion and… well, everything… this emperor knows it all, or so he thinks! A couple of con artists decide to profit from his bombast, and persuade the emperor that they have the world’s most exquisite fabric. The emperor pays the “tailors” a fortune, but when he goes to inspect his dazzling new wardrobe, the con artists offer a clever trick that ultimately shows the foolishness brought on by the emperor’s “sophistication.” A fun tale that reminds us we must not let fear or pride stop us from speaking up and stating the truth.
