Show Information

Have you ever lost something? A toy? A tooth? A memory? What if, one day, you lost all of your 'silly'?

When the Emperor demands the coolest clothes to help him be, well, 'cool'... The call is answered by a pair of wily Weavers, who concoct a cunning plan and land everyone in an embarrassing situation. Who will help the Emperor rediscover his joy and silliness?

Sherman Theatre and Theatr Iolo present The Emperor's New Clothes / Dillad Newydd yr Ymerawdwr - a reimagining of the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale. Written by award-winning playwright Alun Saunders, with songs and live music, there's something here for the whole family this Christmas!

Made especially for 3 - 6 year olds and their families.
