Acting Adventures: The Emperor’s New Clothes

In our Acting Adventures camps, students in K-6th grade learn the importance of using their body, voice, and imagination, while working on the short play, The Emperor’s New Clothes. Students will audition for roles on the first day of camp. Everyone enrolled is cast. Each day, they will rehearse the show, learn acting techniques, play games that emphasize teamwork, and develop their acting skills through improvisational games and acting exercises. The camp will culminate in a short, informal performance for parents at the end of the week. This camp is perfect for students with varying levels of experience.

About The Emperor’s New Clothes:

In this classic Hans Christian Andersen tale, a vain Emperor falls prey to two swindlers who convince him to purchase expensive garments that are invisible. Unfortunately, the emperor has surrounded himself with people who only tell him what he wants to hear. It takes the honesty of a child to set the record straight.
