A groovy ‘60s take on the famous tale! The Emperor is beloved as a chic trendsetter, but his ridiculous fashion tax is bankrupting the country. One heroic kid decides to teach the image-conscious ruler a lesson about what really matters - but they unexpectedly become friends. She is soon faced with a decision: should she tell the truth and risk his disapproval, or pretend like everyone else? This silly send-up has an anti-materialism message, and encourages all of us to be truthful about who we really are.

To most people, Roxaboxen was just a hill with stones, some wooden boxes, and lots of cactus. But to eight children it was a magical town of their own making - "a place that really was, and, once you've been there, always is." Magik Founder Emeritus Richard Rosen and new Managing Artistic Director Frances Limoncelli pair up to bring this heartwarming tale to life again on the Magik stage.
