Product Description
Fashion Class Play or Assembly including The Emperor's New Clothes
The story of The Emperor’s New Clothes provides the bulk of the text - with a minimum cast of 10; cast numbers are made up to 30 by the addition of numerous fashion models, plus 'sparring' fashion designer and narrator!
Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down
Duration - reading of text around 15 minutes but this does not include music or performances - both of which can be increased to effectively double the length of the play.
Sample Text (1):
Music 1 – You’re So Vain – Carly Simon
(Whole cast files in, seating themselves in order, along two rows of fifteen, facing the audience, Narrator standing at the side throughout)
Narrator: Good morning and welcome to our assembly on
Whole cast: (Together) Fashion!
Music 2 – Fashion – David Bowie
(Line of fashion models walk up and down ‘the catwalk’ in front of the audience)
Narrator: (Applauding as models return to their places) Very good! Bravo!
(To audience) But seriously! Did you see the size of those heels? I mean, how on earth do they manage to walk on such things? Impractical or what?
(Enter Fashion Designer)
Fashion Designer: (Sniffing his disapproval) Oh! Hasn’t anyone told you? It’s about how you look on that catwalk.
Narrator: (Angrily) Even if it cripples you?
Fashion Designer: Oh darling! Aren’t we being just a tad overdramatic?
Narrator: (Huffily) No, not really! I wouldn’t be able to move in those heels!
(Fashion Designer pointedly looks Narrator up and down)
Fashion Designer: No, I don’t suppose you would!
(Aside to audience) No great loss to the fashion world, right?
Narrator: (Angrily) Just because I am not a slave to fashion
Fashion Designer: Oh, I think we can all see that!
Narrator: Well, let me tell you, Mr. Fashion Designer! I am quite happy wearing the clothes I’m in!
Fashion Designer: (Dismissively) Each to their own!
(Aside to audience) I don’t know about you … but I wouldn’t be seen dead in … that!
Narrator: (Exploding) Is that right?
(To audience) I think it’s about time we took this ‘fashionista’ down a peg or two. Knock a little common sense into that huge ego of his. Watch this space!
(To Fashion Designer) I invite you to take a seat this morning and enjoy our show
Sample Text (2) - from The Emperor's New Clothes
Narrator: Once upon a time there lived an emperor who was very fond of his clothes.
(Enter Emperor and two courtiers)
Emperor: (Twirling on the spot) So, what do you think of my outfit today?
Courtier 1: (Gushing) Magnificent!
Courtier 2: (Even more gushing) Fantastic!
Emperor: (Preening himself) Oh really! Flattery will get you nowhere!
Courtier 1: (Aside) Wanna bet?
Courtier 2: We wouldn’t get far without it!
Emperor: What was that? Commenting on the quality of this wonderful fabric, no doubt?
Courtier 1: Oh, of course, majesty!
Courtier 2: The finest in the land, to be sure!
Emperor: I rather think so!
(Aside) Best not say how much it cost! More than I pay these two courtiers in a year!
(To Courtier 1) A mirror, please! It must be at least a minute since I looked at myself!
(Courtier 1 gives Emperor mirror)
Emperor: (Sighing deeply) Ah! Just as I thought! Regal, majestic,
(Emperor impatiently gestures to courtiers to provide more superlatives)
Courtier 1: Er, handsome!
Courtier 2: Um, stunning … er
Emperor: (Tutting) Oh dear! A little off form today, boys! Still, I suppose when you see such magnificence, day after day
Courtier 1: Oh, you never disappoint, majesty!
Emperor: (Simpering) I do my best! (Pauses, looking at watch)
But wait! It’s been over five minutes since my last change of outfit! That will never do!
(To Courtiers) Away! Whilst I change into something even more fabulous!
I will be producing a simplified version for Key Stage One - based on 'Clothes We Wear'; and I am happy to write a script specifically on the History of Fashion should anyone request it.
Also available is an Emperor’s New Clothes guided reading script/conversational piece between principal characters which includes story synopsis, teaching input, discussion and suggestions for further activities.
