The Emperor’s New Clothes
Hiccup Theatre bring you the greatest fake news story ever told!
It’s Dress up and Play Day! The Emperor likes nothing more than a fashion parade and you are all invited to Ooh and Ahh at his latest eye-popping outfit.
Meet the vain Emperor, the pandering advisors who offer uncritical support, and the crowd, who fail to recognize the truth, preferring lies to flourish.
Hilarious and heartwarming, magical and musical…it’s a stylish treat for all the family.
The award-winning Hiccup Theatre spin music, puppetry, BSL and storytelling into a very special yarn.
Supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Ian McKellen Producer Grant.
A brand new adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen Classic.

Polka Theatre creates a range of productions to be enjoyed by children from 0-12 years. Whilst all children may attend our productions, we feel that this story is best suited to the suggested audience. This may be due to the themes or presentation style. We encourage you to consider this when booking tickets.
