Lorain Public Library - Domonkas Branch

Recommended for Grades K-5, but suitable for everyone! No tickets necessary, just arrive! The show is approximately 45 minutes and includes a question and answer session with the performers following the show.

When two strangers arrive in the city of Logos, they call attention to themselves by claiming to be able to make the most magnificent and magical clothing. The Emperor cannot resist this claim! The ensuing silliness can only be sorted out by the most intelligent and sensible person in the empire, a child named Captiosa.

The Emperor's New Clothes is a co-production with LCCC Theatre Department.

Themes: Fables, Telling the Truth, Doing the Right Thing, Spelling, The Power of Words, Trusting Your Instincts
