The Emperor’s New Clothes
The Altoona Area Junior High School Drama Club is proud to present The Emperor’s New Clothes. Public performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, November 17th with a matinee show at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 18, 2023.  All performances will take place in the Altoona Area Junior High School Auditorium.
Based on the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, The Emperor's New Clothes is a favorite children's story.  Packed with action, laughs, and magic tricks, lots of laughs are in store when Peter, the mischievous tailor, comes up with a sure-fire get rich quick scheme to embarrass the vain Emperor and make off with a basket of jewels and gold.  Peter convinces the court he can make magic clothes and the web of deceit starts spinning! Only those who are very smart can see the clothes, he tells them.  And everyone pretends they can see the clothes until...Someone shouts out the truth!  Join us to see what happens next!
General admission tickets will only be on sale at the door and will cost $8 for adults and $5 for students. Doors open approximately 1/2 hour before each show.
