[Local Buzz] UNC-Greensboro Presents ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ At Festival Park
The UNC- Greensboro North Carolina Theatre for Young People will present their kids puppet show The Emperor’s New Clothes as part of the 2013 Performance Series at Roanoke Island Festival Park this July.
The mission of North Carolina Theatre for Young People is to produce plays to engage young audiences, ages kindergarten through 9th grade, in the art of live theatre.
The group strives to present highly mobile and flexible productions that can be presented effectively in a variety of performance settings.
The plays are chosen from the best available to include a variety of styles and content in order to provide audiences with the richness of theatre for young audiences literature. They seek to encourage and foster the development of new scripts, develop residencies in creative drama and theatre for schools, and explore the theory that theatre going by young people will contribute to the development of adult audiences of tomorrow.
Since its start in 1962, the North Carolina Theatre for Young People has reached well over one million kids with formal, on-campus stage productions and touring shows.
Three performances of The Emperor’s New Clothes are scheduled on July 1-3, with showtime at 10:30am each day in the Indoor Theatre at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo.
