Emperor's New Clothes at Marquis Theatre in Northville

A live production of the classic fairytale will enchant kids of all ages with song and dance at this family theater venue select dates Aug. 5-Sept. 22, 2013

A magical spool of thread, an elaborate trick and a moral that will stick are all awaiting your family in The Emperor's New Clothes, a kids' play hitting Marquis Theatre in Northville Aug. 5-10, 12-17, 24, 31, Sept. 1, 7-8, 14-15 and 21-22, 2013

This historical theater proudly presents a mixed cast of both adults and children in its comedic production about an emperor so caught up in having the newest things that he parades around in an "invisible suit" – all to prove he has the best of the best.

This fantastical story, originally created by Hans Christian Andersen, weaves the tale of two tailors who promise to clothe a narcissistic ruler in such robes as he has never seen before. They claim that anyone who cannot see the magical clothing is unfit for his or her position – or simply stupid. So the people of the land go along with the ruse, afraid to admit to the fact that all they see is a naked emperor.

The twist? No one can see the emperor's clothes, of course; not even the emperor himself! This classic children's tale teaches an excellent lesson in the pitfalls of vanity.

This show is for ages 3 and older. Join along in big belly laughs throughout August and September. Show times are as follows:

  • Weekdays: 10:30 a.m. Aug. 5-9 and Aug. 12-16
  • Saturdays: 2:30 p.m. Aug. 10, 17, 24, 31 and Sept. 7, 14 and 21
  • Sundays: 2:30 p.m. Sept. 1, 8, 15 and 22

Tickets are for sale at the door for $9 each. Group rates and reserved seating are available upon request.
