At Columbus Children's Theatre

Columbus Children'sTheatre opens its newest production, TheEmperor's New Clothes, next Thursday, April 9, with shows continuing through April 26. All performances take place at The Columbus Children's Theatre, located at 512 Park St., just north of the North Market and the Arena District.

The Emperor's New Clothes byWilliam Goldsmith, is about a Emperor who needs new clothes, and Tom and Tina are the two unlikely tailors asked to create them. They are not tailors but swindlers and their target is The Emperor. Convincing the arrogant and conceited Emperor to wear the invisible clothes provides laughter and fun for all. A very funny adaptation of a classic tale performed by CCT's Professional Touring Company and featuring audience participation.

The Emperor's New Clothes is a 50-minute performance recommended for everyone age 3 and older. Shows take place: Thursdays, April 9, 16 and 23 at 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, April 10, 17 and 24 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, April 11, 18 and 25 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.; and Sundays, April 12, 19 and 26 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $15-$20 for children, students, and seniors and $20-$25 for adults. For more information, call 614-224-6672 or visit www.columbuschildrenstheatre.org.
