The incomparably imaginative creators of Seussical, Ragtime, Anastasia and more, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, bring one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved tales to life in The Emperor’s New Clothes. Developed by Kansas City’s Coterie Theatre, leaders in the Theatre for Young Audiences genre, this winsome musical is a crowd-pleaser for all ages.
Fifteen-year-old Emperor Marcus the Third is nervous to take the throne. Deciding that he can only gain confidence by dressing in the finest attire, Marcus commands his Royal Clothes-maker to fashion him in the most royal wardrobe. Taking advantage of Marcus’ uncertainty and immaturity, a Swindler promises to make magic clothes that are “invisible to fools, liars, and anyone you should ignore,” for a large and hefty price. Only Arno, the simple-hearted mop boy, can help Marcus out of this royal mess and teach him an important lesson about outward appearance.
Senior (Ages 65+) $17
Student/Child (Ages 4 to College Student with ID) $15
