Illyria Outdoor Theatre- The Emperor’s New Clothes

July 6th, 2017 - July 6th, 2017

Now in their 26th season they return with one of the most famous cautionary tales ever told. As in so many of Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, beneath the fancy clothes of the tale lies something more meaningful; human weaknesses are satirised mercilessly; and a capacity for loving is the highest value. There are larger-than-life characters, lots and lots to join in with – and an ending that will leave you helpless with laughter!

[NB – there is NO nudity in the production. Although one of the actors may be a little chilly…]

Recommended for children aged 5+ and their families
