The Emperor's New Clothes was the Village Playhouse's 2006 traveling children's production. This show travels to various locations in the metropolitan area.  All shows are open to the public with tickets available at the door.  (At the Lakefront Festival of the Arts the performance is free with admission to the grounds) 


The vain and childish Emperor is duped by two schemers who convince him they can make him a unique suit of clothes that is not only beautiful, but magical––it can only by see by those who are honest. Afraid he won't be able to see the cloth himself, the Emperor enlists the aid of his two ministers, who complicate matters when they are aftraid to admit they cannot see it.
