Synopsis

A Caribbean musical adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale! It's a big day on the tiny island of Little Iguana: it's young Jasmin Martin's birthday. Her wish is simple-to spend the day making sand castles with her parents and to try on the beautiful simple sash her father bought her. But the Emperor of the island sets all the fashion standards -from high-tops to headgear-and poor Jasmin's big day doesn't stand a chance against the thrills of the runway. Then "magic" tailor Uriah "Buzz" Butler swims ashore (having been kicked off the island of Little Barracuda for starting a rebellion), and he has his own ideas for a clothing line. Now the Emperor, his subjects, and the whole island are in for a shock. This charming version features song styles of the Caribbean-Calypso, Reggae, Ska, and even a hat-and-cane number (as well as audience participation and the most amazing loom you'll ever see on a stage)—all to make the point that clothes don't make the human!

Media Reviews

"[This] hilarious, Caribbean-flavored Emperor's New Clothes is an audience-participatory blast with a sneaky little moral." -Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Full of the little things kids love with a hilarious denouement worth the wait. Judging from the reaction of the young audience, the play's title character was the only one who didn't leave in stitches." -St. Petersburg Times
