Elmwood Players’ Children’s Theatre returns with a delightful, amusing re-telling of the Hans Christian Andersen story. The vain and childish Emperor is duped by two schemers who convince him they can make him a unique suit of clothes that is not only beautiful, but magical - it can only be seen by those who are honest.
Afraid he won't be able to see the cloth himself, the Emperor enlists the aid of his two ministers, who complicate matters when they are afraid to admit they cannot see it.
