What’s big and fat and pink and loves to dress up in fancy clothes?

Give up? It’s the Emperor himself in Grey Seal Puppets’ clever adaptation of The Emperor’s New Clothes. Not only is this Emperor big, fat, and pink, he just happens to be a pig. The Hans Christian Andersen story takes on a whole new dimension as this classic is transformed into a fable.
The crafty tailors are foxes; the prime minister a near-sighted camel; and the councilor is a befuddled old walrus. Even the audience takes part, as animals, of course. Children will recognize the Emperor as a vain ruler who easily falls for the tailors’ story about a magic cloth.
