Hans Christian Anderson's "The Emperor's New Clothes" is a tale that everybody loves. Because it lends itself so well to the stage there are many dramatizations, but we think that if you read them all, you'll like this one best.

Although we suppose this will be regarded as a children's play, adults enjoy it, too. Everybody delights in watching the pompous, selfish emperor parading around in his underwear. And it's appropriate that a naive, simple child should be the only one honest enough to admit that he can't see the new clothes.

Sharon Cole has brought the characters to life with strong but humorous personalities that your cast members will love playing. Every role is a gem. Many of the roles can be played by males or females. The "children"—Patches, Prince Terry Cloth, and Princess Polly Ester—may be played by children or by adults acting like children. Since this is farce and fantasy, size does not matter; a towering hulk of a boy may be hilarious as the little prince playing with his Teddy bear.

This version of THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES is suitable for all groups and all ages.

After its world premiere at Santa Rosa Junior College in California, it was presented at the annual Summer Drama Workshop at Stephen F. Austin University, Nacogdoches, Texas. Special thanks are due to Dr. W. K. Waters, Jr. of the SFA Theatre Department and Joe Wheelis, past president of the Texas Seconday Theatre Conference, for their help in preparing the script for publication.
