ugar Loaf — Kings Theatre Company at the Lycian Centre announces the second of the two new Children’s programs at the complex’s “on the Wharf” Theatre by the Lake. The children’s play, The children’s play “My Emperor’s New Clothes” will be performed on Aug. 16 and 18, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Lycian Centre in Sugar Loaf.
This children’s performance is about the “wise emperor” and his request to have his clothes made of the finest cloth for a parade.
While people are familiar with Hans Christian Andersen story, this new version by Larry Shue takes place in the mythical kingdom of Mango-Chutney, which has a parade every day, a one-man army named Pony, and an emperor who is known as the wisest man in the world because he has read the dictionary all the way through.
The emperor, deciding to hold a special parade for which he must have the most beautiful clothes in the world, offers half of the state treasury to the weaver who comes up with the finest cloth. And being as wise as he is, he also announces that he will give the other half of the treasury plus the hand of his daughter, Princess Farthingale, to anyone who can make him believe that something is real when actually it is not.
