Remember “it’s bad luck to say good luck on opening night.” Let’s visit Lincolnshire and see what the 2018 Marriott Theatre schedule has to offer.

The Emperor’s New Clothes (February 23-May 13) For Kids

A set of new threads for Masterkid theatre is a must for The Emperor’s New Clothes. Attendees will tap into the minds of the ingenious creators of the musical Seussical (who wrote this play). The story follows Marcus the Third, a nervous 14-year-old boy who is apprehensive about taking over the throne. He decides that the only way he will gain the confidence to rule is by dressing lavishly. He entrusts a swindler who promises to make magic clothes. The message your kids will learn is the important lesson about outward appearance.
