The Emperor’s New Clothes

// Glen Street Theatre 2012

The Australian premiere of this critically acclaimed new musical proved that The Emperor’s New Clothes truly is a musical that keeps audience members of every age smiling.

A fast-paced, delightfully updated version of a classic fairy tale with a clever, winning score – this show fills a gap that theatre rarely fills. The Emperor’s New Clothes is full of enough wit and current references to keep the adults entertained, appealing to teens with lyrics straight out of 21st century jargon and enough colour and action to keep children glued to their seats.

Running from September 28 – October 6 2012, Emperor raised over $21,000 for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead – taking the total donation from annual musical productions to $114,000!!!
