This is Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy-tale given a panto makeover. When the egotistical and clothes-obsessed Emperor Fancypants engages con-artists Nip and Tuck to make him the most fabulous outfit, they con him into purchasing a suit of clothes so finely made that only the most intelligent of people can actually see it. The costs of the Emperor’s obsession keep escalating until the kingdom is virtually bankrupt. After much comedy business, the Emperor’s eyes are opened by an innocent child and Nip and Tuck’s trickery is finally exposed.

A pantomime by Limelight Scripts
Adapted and Directed by Susan Dearnley with original songs by Diana Thomson
