Review from MaryBeth Smith

The actors were all marvelous! I was almost dizzy as they performed in many, many different roles and were never out of character. The script wasn't my favorite and the story a little light but it was a fun night. Not your normal play.

Description

Who says that fairy tales are for children only? Can the belief that love and honesty just might conquer all be held only by the youngest of us? The Naked King joyfully affirms the opposite. The calamities in the world are no match for the wit, ingenuity and love the characters in this play use as their weapons.

The plot charts the engaging journey of a swineherd, who falls in love with a princess and is sent into exile by her disapproving father. In the next kingdom, he discovers a monarch who has not been entirely honest with his people (does that ever happen in real life?). This whimsical and entertaining cocktail of three Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales, The Swineherd, The Princess and the Pea and The Emperor’s New Clothes, has some other tasty, original ingredients.
