Classic fairy-tale with a twist

The Emperor's New Clothes cast at Noosa Arts Theatre.

Noosa Arts Theatre is delighted to announce their traditional favourite pantomime show is back with a blast in 2022 after last year’s enforced Covid hiatus.

This will be director Susan Dearnley’s ninth pantomime.

The show is Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy-tale, The Emperor’s New Clothes with a brilliant panto twist.

When the egotistical and clothes-obsessed, Emperor Fancypants engages con-artists Nip and Tuck, to make him the most fabulous outfit, they fool him into purchasing a suit of clothes so finely made, that only the most intelligent of people can actually see it.

Unfortunately the costs keep escalating, until the kingdom is virtually bankrupt.

After much comedy business, the Emperor’s eyes are finally opened by an innocent child, and Nip and Tuck’s trickery is finally exposed.

Due to Covid restrictions the cast numbers are slightly lower but out of the wonderful cast of 21, 11 are returnees to the pantomime stage which just confirms how much actors both young and old love this genre.

As we know it’s a huge amount of fun for not only the kids who can get involved but the adults can revert into their childhood days and enjoy the ride too.

The show is on for three weekends in January opening on Saturday 8 January and closing Sunday 23 January 2022.

There are two shows both on the Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday the times are 11am and 2pm and on Sunday 1pm and 4pm.

So don’t miss out on this fun adventure. Book now to avoid disappointment.
