Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairy-tale, given a panto makeover. When the egotistical and clothes-obsessed, Emperor Fancypants engages small-time crooks Nip and Tuck, to make him the most fabulous outfit. They con him into purchasing a suit of clothes so finely made, that only the most intelligent of people can actually see it. And the costs keep escalating, until the kingdom is virtually bankrupt. After much comedy business, the Emperor’s eyes are finally opened by an innocent child, and Nip and Tuck are finally brought to book.
11 principals (although Witch Thimble has only one big scene in Act 2, she could double-up as the Old Woman and also join in some scenes) also includes several small cameo speaking roles and a Dog.
