2022-2023 School Time Theatre season

  • The Emperor's New Clothes

    Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022, 10amET and NoonET, Recommended Grades: 2-6, Art, Language Arts, Literary Classic, History, Character Development, Reading. Presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre

    This classic fable is brought to hilarious life in a fresh adaptation set during the American Revolution. When a troupe of actors comes to raise the spirits of George Washington's troops at Valley Forge, the emperor of the famous satire becomes King George III. This know-it-all emperor and famous "fashionista" taxes his people and passes unjust laws based on the cut of his garments. A clever American lass, posing as a tailor, convinces the emperor she can weave the world's finest fabric for the world's most exquisite outfit. The "tailor" is paid a fortune, but instead of an outfit, offers a clever trick that ultimately vanquishes the foolish emperor and his court, much to the delight of the Continental Army. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes

    Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022, 10amET and NoonET, Recommended Grades: Pre-K through 3. Communication and Language Arts, Music, Literature-Based, Relationships and Family. Presented by TheatreWorksUSA
