About this show

When a boy-emperor "bares" his soul to the subjects of his kingdom, a royal mess ensues. Join Maurer Productions OnStage for the hilariously charming Emperor's New Clothes. Composed by the talented musical team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, this delightful adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale adds to the familiar story with songs, dance numbers and a castle full of colorful characters. Emperor Marcus the Third wonders how he can possibly run an empire at the tender age of 14. In an attempt to appear wiser than his years, he decides to follow the credo that "clothes make the man," but soon finds himself at the center of an embarrassing hoax.
