It's one of the most popular events of the year at the Midland Arts Centre, and punters are being given a chance to book now and save money.
The Emperor?s New Clothes will be Mac Productions? family Christmas show. Mac brings together the award wining production team that brought you last year?s hugely popular The Snow Queen, 2003's Arabian Nights and the acclaimed Firebird in 2001.
The show tells the famous story of the Emperor, a very vain man, whose only worry in life is to dress in elegant clothes. When he hears of two tailors who have created a magical cloth, woven from the finest silks and shot through with gold, he has to have an outfit made from it.
The tailors tell him this cloth is so magical that it will appear invisible to stupid people. And everyone knows what happens next...
Story- telling, puppetry, music, songs, magical sets and costumes combined with a sparkling new script written especially for Mac by acclaimed writer Neil Duffield, add up to a hilarious show for families in the festive season.
As part of Mac?s commitment to making theatre a real part of children?s lives, there is a unique offer for schools ? book before July 22 and pay the 2001 price. Tickets are available to purchase now.
