The Emperor’s New Clothes

Many years ago there was an Emperor so exceedingly fond of new clothes that he spent all his   money on being well dressed. He cared nothing about reviewing his soldiers, going to the theatre, or going for a ride in his carriage, except to show off his new clothes. He had a coat for every hour of the day.  Set in the colorful Kingdom of Knoll, this version of Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale includes many featured roles including a zany Emperor, his nieces and nephew, a poor peasant boy, three swindlers and a Narrator who propels the plot forward.
