The youthful actors at The Osceola County School for the Arts bring to life Larry Shue’s fanciful, theatrical interpretation of My Emperor’s New Clothes, the classic Hans Christian Andersen story. Audience members renew their passports and join thespians on a comedic, musical journey to the kingdom of Mango-Chutney, where an emperor challenges weavers to bring him the most exquisite fabric in the world and offers his daughter’s hand in marriage to whoever can make him believe something that is not real. As a pair of spies from a neighboring country begin scheming, the plot thickens, filling the school’s 2,000-seat theater with more guffaws than the inside of a laughter-canning factory.
