We are inviting families along to join us at The Polka Theatre to see a BSL signed performance of The Emperor’s New Clothes.

‘We bring you the greatest fake news story ever told!

The Emperor likes nothing more than a fashion parade and you are all invited to ohh and ahh at his latest eye-popping outfit. Meet the vain Emperor, the pandering advisors who offer uncritical support, and the crowd who fail to tell the truth, preferring lies to be told instead. 

Hilarious and heartwarming, magical and musical…it’s a stylish treat for all the family. A brand new adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen Classic.

The award-winning Hiccup Theatre join forces with Polka Theatre and Derby Theatre to spin music, puppetry, BSL and storytelling into a very special yarn.

All performances will have fully integrated British Sign Language and Captioning.’

Time: Meet in the foyer and collect your tickets from 1.30pm

Performance start time: 2.00pm

Age:  Recommended for ages 3-8 years old

Running time: 55 mins.

Cost:  £4.50 per person
