The Emperor's New Clothes

We had two great sold-out shows of Just So Stories this week! Thank you to everyone who came- we had a lot of fun performing for such great audiences. 2011 has been a good year at CactusHead Puppets, and we are excited to announce our new show for April of 2012 will be The Emperor's New Clothes.

The Emperor's New Clothes.

Fashion is the most important thing to the Emperor, even more than taking care of his own kingdom. When two strangers come to town promising the most beautiful clothes anyone has ever seen, the Emperor learns a lesson in fashion he will never forget.

The show will run April 16th- 21st at the Eric Carle Museum, and be available for touring afterward. Look for posts about the making of The Emperor's New Clothes in the new year, as well as listings of our performances around the region.

Hope you are having a great holiday season, and Happy New Year!
