The Davis Musical Theatre Company announces the opening of “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” a breezy musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known satirical tale.

Mr. Stitch and Mr. Sew wreak havoc at Wits Ends Palace when they present the Emperor with a special gift: an exquisitely beautiful “magic” suit of clothes, invisible to all but the wisest of men. “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is a charming exploration of the dangers of vanity, with a host of hilarious characters that includes a brassy, tap-dancing, bugle-playing Empress.

“The Emperor’s New Clothes” runs May 3-25, with performances at 2:15 p.m. Saturdays, May 3, 10, 17 and 24; 7:15 p.m. Friday, May 23; and 2:15 p.m. Sunday, May 25. All performances are at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in East Davis.

The show is directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, and features Jonathan Kalinen (the Emperor), Tracy Traum (the Empress), Fiona Cubbage (Mr. Stitch), Isabella Gianetti (Mr. Sew), Cassidy Smith (Verity), Anthony Swaminathan (Chester the Jester) and Jenna Karoly (Sinister the Prime Minister).

Book and lyrics are by Jim Eiler, with music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy.

Tickets are $8 and may be purchased online at dmtc.org (there is a $2 facility fee per ticket), or by calling 530-756-3682.
