Step into a captivating kingdom where trends rule and social media consumes the Emperor’s attention, leaving real issues neglected. Influencers take center stage to sport the hottest new fashion at the Royal Parade, however, there’s a catch—the garments can only be seen by the most fabulous individuals. Determined not to be left out, the Emperor dons the “clothes” and eagerly shares photos, hoping for millions of cool-clicks. Will anyone have the courage to speak the truth before the parade begins? Find out in this fashionable tale that delves into cyberbullying, online etiquette, peer pressure, and body positivity, while reminding us all of the importance of unplugging and reconnecting with our community. Set to catchy tunes, featuring dazzling costumes, and propelled by a fast-paced script, The Emperor’s New Posts skillfully engages and captivates youth and teens alike.
This play for grades 4-6 is provided FREE of charge for SFUSD schools and teachers. Performances are 50-minutes in length and can accommodate 50-60 students at our NCTC theater easily accessible by MUNI.
