Chattanooga Theatre Centre brings this Youth theatre show to the Circle Stage. The original by Hans Christian Anderson has been re-envisioned by Youth Theatre Director Maria Chattin Carter and the young cast. CTC’s, “Emperor’s New Clothes” is set in an old Vaudeville Theatre house and features stock Vaudeville characters like a sad clown, a magician and his assistant, acrobats, a ventriloquist/fortune teller, little dancing girls, two scoundrel costumers and a grandiose lead actor known as the Emperor.
CTC’s press release gives dates and times and a brief synopsis:
Public Shows: Dec. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18 (Friday shows at 7:30pm and Sat. and Sun. at 2:30pm)
School group performances are available. Please call the Box Office at (423) 267-8534 for dates and times.
Festival season is upon the land and the narcissistic emperor needs new duds. Two con men take advantage of the wonderful emperor and possibly teach him a much-needed lesson. This is sure to be a funny, fast-paced comedy the whole family will enjoy.
