Fall 2023 After School – The Emperor’s New Clothes. Grades 1 – 7

Emperor Ferdinand has decided to hold a huge celebration in honor of his Empire’s 300th birthday—and to have a contest to see who could come up with the most stunning new outfit for him to wear on the big day! The empire is all a-buzz when two mysterious weavers appear with a “cloth of truth” and everything begins to go sideways as all are challenged by the contest of honesty versus deception!
