Emperor Penguin's New Clothes


Imaginative puppeteers from StoneLion Puppet Theatre present the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale of an Emperor (Penguin) who has nothing new to wear. Twelve songs written by Jack Sharman are interspersed to highlight the crazy antics that ensue.


Tailors from all over the frozen land come to bring him their latest creations along with two shifty polar bears intent on duping the kingdom out of their riches. Just what does he end up wearing?
