A slapstick, mad cap, crackpot version of the still stylish tale of an Emperor with a passion for fashion. In the Empire of Abalonia, the bratty new Royal demands a trendy new wardrobe. Enter two stealing, scamming, flimming and flamming, roguish rogues who are only too happy to fulfill the Emperor's wishes while looting the royal treasury. Best appreciated by ages 5 and up.

The Emperor’s New ClothesBy Martina Plag, Puppet Designer

For centuries, puppetry has captivated us with its universal appeal and power,with its innate ability to allow audiences to instantly suspend disbelief, and as anextension of ourselves. Puppets provide a rich and unique opportunity for both self-discovery and artistic expression. In this age of complexity and technologicalinnovation, the magical simplicity of puppets is becoming increasingly morerelevant, as is evident through the growing desire to use puppets in performance. Inrecent years, puppetry has been enjoying a resurgence upon the American stage andis (re-)emerging as commentary on our world.

One of the reasons I am so thrilled to have been asked to be a part of thiscreative process and develop the puppets for The Emperor’s New Clothes is that thecreative team knew from the piece’s inception that, while puppets hold such power,they are mere tools in the story-telling process. Experts in the field of puppetryoften liken puppetry to a musical concert, where instrument, score and performerare well-integrated and mutually interdependent. In the art of puppetry it is easy tobecome seduced by the object of the puppet — true artistry emerges out ofcombining it with the talents of the performer to support the richness of a script.

The puppets on the stage this evening have come out of this understanding thatthey serve as tools developed with the performers and creative team in a series ofworkshops specific to this script. The core puppeteers spend many hours in theworkshop helping to build their instruments, giving each an integral understanding ofthe puppets’ construction, form and function. All the puppets are hybrids specific tothis piece and they fall into three categories: the townspeople (inspired by simple dress-up dolls), the policemen (larger-than-life and able to take a beating in their veryphysical romps) and the table-top puppets that serve as alter-egos to their cast membersas they explore their part in a scene that originally called for a film montage in thescript.

I am greatly inspired by the commitment and talent of the entire team ofperformers, designers and administrators that facilitate the process of explorationhere at People’s Light necessary to bringing a magical simplicity to its audiences. Itis a great honor to have been asked to contribute to this interchange.

ABOUT THE AUTHORHans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen is best known for his many beloved fairytales: “TheLittle Mermaid,” “The Steadfast Tin Soldier,” “The Princess and the Pea,” “TheUgly Duckling,” “Thumbelina,” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” to name just afew. But Andersen’s own life also sounds like the makings of a fairytale. He wasborn into a poor family in 1805 in Odense, Denmark. He died in 1875 anacclaimed writer, accepted into the homes of royalty and brilliant thinkers alike.

At the age of 14, Andersen set out for Copenhagen and the Royal Theater, butwas a failure as an actor. A fund from the King of Denmark gave him theopportunity to get an education, but he was miserable at school. Years older thanhis educational peers and forbidden to write fiction, he still managed to produce apoem called “The Dying Child,” which the headmaster declared to be “idle trash.”It became one of the most famous poems of the century.

Andersen published his first story at the age of 22 to unexpected acclaim, thenpenned a play which was performed at the Royal Court Theater, then turned out acollection of poems. He was already a well-known novelist, as well, when he beganwriting fairytales at the age of 29.

The fairytales created a sensation. Up until that time, most stories for childrenhad been fables, designed to deliver cautionary or moral lessons. Andersen’s workhad a depth and humor to it that readers of many ages loved. His fairytales havebecome films and plays, expressions (“she’s an ugly duckling”), numerous writtenadaptations, and well-loved classics in over 150 languages.

HISTORYNow in our 35th season, the People’s Light & Theatre Company is a

non-profit, professional theatre founded in 1974 by Danny Fruchter, MegFruchter, Ken Marini, and Dick Keeler. These artists were committed tomaking theatre rooted in service to the community with artists who lived inthe community. Today, this founding principle remains central to People’sLight through our mission and programming. Our mission is to make playsdrawn from many sources to entertain, inspire and engage our community.We hope that these plays and programs bring people together and provideopportunities for reflection, discovery and celebration.

We extend our mission througharts education programs that excitecuriosity about and deepenunderstanding of the world aroundus. Our artistic ensemble engages insignificant community collaborationand continues to make connectionswith new audiences through ournationally recognized arts educationprogram, Project Discovery. This

program serves 30,000 young people each year through in-school residencies,student matinees that bring students from 20 high schools to the theatre twiceeach year for free, special projects tailored to specific youth communities, and ayear-round Theatre School for both young people and adults. We house guestartists in a restored 18th century farmhouse that includes a banquet room thatcan be rented for special events, as well as a bistro, Places! Total communityserved is nearly 85,000 annually. Our $5 million annual budget employs 70full and permanent part-time artists and staff members and almost 200additional guest artists.

People’s Light has always made its home in Chester County. In 1979the Theatre moved to our current seven-acre site in Malvern, whichincludes two black box theatres with 375 and 180 seats, respectively. Weproduce seven to nine plays per season, mixing world premieres,contemporary plays, and fresh approaches to classic texts for our 6-PlaySeries and Family Discovery Series. The Theatre continues to be recognizednationally for commissioning new plays; of the 338 productions we havemounted over the course of our 35-year history, 122 were world/regionalpremieres, over one-third of our production output. Recent commissionsthat have received world-premiere performances at People’s Light were YYork’s adaptation of Jerry Spinelli’s Eggs, Russell Davis’ The Day of thePicnic, the adaptation and translation of Luigi Pirandello’s Six Characters inSearch of an Author by company member Louis Lippa; Playwright RussellDavis’ adaptation of Crispin: The Cross of Lead by Avi; and Y York’sadaptation of Getting Near to Baby by Audrey Couloumbis, which was justremounted at Childsplay in Tempe, Arizona and is soon to be produced atSeattle Children’s Theatre.

Notable past productions include Lou Lippa’s two-part, six-houradaptation of Theodore Dreiser’s Sister Carrie, Karen Sunde’s Achilles: AKabuki Play (both world premieres), and The Gospel at Colonus by BobTelson and Lee Breuer. American premieres include: Edward Kemp’stranslation of Gotthold Lessing’s Nathan the Wise, David Hare’s adaptationof Brecht’s The Life of Galileo, Grimm Tales, Beauty and the Beast, and MoreGrimm Tales from London’s Young Vic. Our productions have toured asclose to home as Philadelphia (Holes at the Kimmel Center in 2005) and asfar away as Mexico, Budapest, and Cyprus.
