Center Players Dessert Theater to present a free play reading of “The Emperor’s New Duds,”


Center Players Dessert Theater will present a free dramatic play reading of “The Emperor’s New Duds,” an adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s the “Emperor’s New Clothes” on Sunday, June 10th at 2pm at historic Oakley Farms, located at 189 Wemrock Road in Freehold.

This charming modern musical adaption of the classic fairy tale is set in the land of Felicity which is blessed by people from all over the globe. Everyone is happy except for their Emperor, who can’t seem to get enough jewels and expensive attire. Some shifty weavers appear and lessons unfold. The play is appropriate for families and children over five years old. This adaptation was written by Center Players’ Artistic Director Bernice Garfield-Szita. Audience members are asked to bring a blanket or lawn chair to the event; the rain date is Sunday, June 17th at 2pm.
