The Morton-James Public Library is excited to sponsor the York College Traveling Children’s Theatre again this year.
The play is a retelling of the Emperors News Clothes with a twist. King Henry is bankrupt, and he has one bag of gold left. A couple of swindlers have come to take the last of his money, pretending to be tailors who will make him a new wardrobe, an invisible wardrobe that only intelligent people can see. No one in the kingdom wants to admit that they cannot see the clothes as this would mean they are stupid. Queen Charlotta has convinced King Henry to marry her because she is in love with him and because she thinks he is rich. King Henry has agreed to marry her because he thinks she is rich. Both of them find out the truth about the clothes, the money, and their love in the end. The play is written by Edith Weiss and directed by John Baker.
