The Emperor's New Clothes


The Emperor's New Clothes
Stuff & Nonsense Theatre Company


Inspired by the Muppets, Danny Kaye and good old family movies, this romp through a classic, eccentric tale tells the story of an Emperor who loves clothes more than anything.

But there is a problem… Despite a wardrobe the size of Paris he’s run out of outfits and his it his birthday tomorrow! He hasn’t got a stitch to wear!

Populated with puppets, music and song, this inventive and energetic production is told in true Stuff and Nonsense style; with unending energy, great storytelling and, as always, a show for a little kids (3+) and bid kids too!

Created using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England with additional support from The Point Eastleigh, Waterside Arts Centre Sale, Theatre Royal Plymouth and The Lyric Theatre Bridport. Directed by Niki McCretton.

“The qualities of play, production and storytelling coalesce into something very exciting. A packed house of young people were treated to a skilful, generous and imaginative journey.” Amit Lahev, Artistic Director of Gecko Theatre.

National tour and seven week Christmas run at The Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth 2016.
