Wonderful New Children's Production Of Classic Story
Young children are in for a real treat when the classic tale of The Emperor's New Clothes is given the 'stuff and nonsense' treatment ahead of a brand new UK tour that takes in the Lichfield Garrick theatre on April 11. The wonderfully named Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company are set to delight kiddies from the age of three upwards with an inventive romp through the classic tale of the Emperor who loves clothes more than anything else. But, despite having a wardrobe the envy of a Hollywood A-lister, the eccentric Emperor ends up making a real spectacle of himself when two so-called fashion designers create an outfit for the ruler that's literally "never been seen before".

New children's version of The Emperor's New Clothes

Populated with puppets, music and song, this inventive production of The Emperor's New Clothes is told in true Stuff and Nonsense style with boundless energy, great storytelling and, as always, a show for all the family. The production has been created using National Lottery funding through Arts Council England with additional support from The Point Eastleigh, Waterside Arts Centre Sale, Theatre Royal Plymouth and The Lyric Theatre Bridport.
