For children and their families ages 5 and up.

A swindler is making their way from town-to-town and they've found the easiest mark yet - a vain Emperor obsessed with just one thing: FASHION.

Will anyone stand up and tell the truth before the swindler gets away with all of the empire's riches?

Performers lead kids in a post-show discussion with that focus on show themes: such as honesty, self-deception, independent thinking, and more.

This HIGHLY INTERACTIVE hour-long performance is a newly updated version of a play already performed in over 1,000 schools nationwide, but never before seen in Iowa.

Tickets from $10 (plus fees)
July 13-28 | Sat and Sun @ 10 AM & 1:30 PM
1200 Ellis Blvd. NW  |  Cedar Rapids
