The well-respected Missoula Children’s Theatre is coming back to Baker City to perform “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. Open to students entering first grade in the fall all the way through High School ages. Missoula Children’s Theatre needs 60 of the area’s most talented performers. The Missoula Children’s Theatre will encourage and inspire our youth in every part of the theatre experience from acting to directing.
“Dress for success” is good advice that the Emperor takes whole-heartedly, wanting to impress new friends. But where to stop? When the clothes (and other people’s opinions) become more important than the people of the kingdom, trouble brews. To help their beloved Emperor find the way back to his heart, his true friends create an elaborate “birthday suit” for the Emperor to wear for his birthday parade celebration. The Emperor quickly and humbly learns that sometimes “less is more”!
Performances will be $5.00 per person and are open to the community.
