The Emperor's New Suit is a classic tale that every elementary school student should read.
In this delightful play version of the Emperor's New Suit, every student in your class can play a role in bringing this ageless story to life.
We've made this version of the story more fun by making it about an Emperor...AND an Empress! Both of them care more about clothes than they do about being good leaders of their country. And both get swindled by two very fashion-forward thieves! Enjoy!
This play does a wonderful job of building reading fluency. We recommend that you practice the play as Readers Theatre several times. Then, when the students' reading and performance is good enough, invite the principal to sit in on a very entertaining play with lots of laughs!
