The Emperor's New Clothes

By Hans Christian Andersen

Directed by Renaye Leach

The mischievous schemings of two clever weavers who know that their leader would rather wear nothing as he parades through town than admit he was wrong are cause for hilarity as PlayTime Productions presents The Emperor’s New Clothes at 15 Dane County venues this fall (see schedule below).

The noted Dane County children’s traveling theatre brings The Emperor’s New Clothes, the hilarious classic Hans Christian Andersen cautionary tale about empty pride and blind trust, to life with a contemporary twist. Just when you think the story is familiar, a new dimension appears. Come see what unfolds in PlayTime’s adaptation of the story for the children’s stage accompanied by an original musical score.

Produced by PlayTime Productions
