When young Peter Ivanova is cast in the part of the lowly tailor in Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale “ The Emperor’s New Clothes” anything can happen!
Join the young tailor as he cooks up a brilliant scheme to get rich quick and save his Grandmother from certain disaster!
When Peter hears of the riches of the Emperor he knows his dreams have come true! He immediately sets out to provide the greedy, and less than confident, Emperor of Kostramo with the finest in invisible attire. Invisible ,that is, to anyone unworthy of his position or too stupid to see the brilliant craftsmanship woven into every stitch of Peter’s magic cloth.
Will the Emperor overcome his fear that HE is indeed unworthy to rule and call Peter’s bluff? or will it be the lowly townsfolk who finally have the guts to tell the Emperor that he is parading in his royal underwear?
Join the cast of The Donut Theatre for The Emperor’s New Clothes and find out for yourself! Packed with laughs, juggling, magic and audience participation, this wonderful story is brought to life in full color by our professional cast of actors and technicians.

September 21, 2007, Oklahoma City For immediate release
There’s a new kid in town, kids theatre that is! Family Theatre Warehouse, a leader in arts training in Oklahoma City, is introducing a professional children’s theatre troupe. “The Donut” children’s playhouse will feature quality productions of classic children’s stories with a blend of humor, adventure and wit.
Director Mark Morris says not to expect fractured fairy tales here, he wants to reintroduce the classics, “We’re not looking to ‘reinvent’ these stories. We want to stay true to the sense of adventure and wonder that we all felt when Ichabod Crane approached the Church bridge with the Headless Horseman hot on his heels!”
Morris, who has taught more than a thousand young Oklahomans a thing or two about acting, is excited to take the next step in his vision of providing Okc with its first “full service- all family- theatre”.
“ In addition to our acting and music theatre classes we are bringing our community theatre and theatre for young audiences to the forefront. We’re trying to fit a niche here in Oklahoma City.” That niche? Families going to the theatre together.
Their intitial offering will feature The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Emperor's New Clothes and The Night before Christmas. Performances will be on Tuesday, and Saturday mornings @ 11 and Thurs. afternoons at 4pm in their comfortable 125 seat theatre at the Family Theatre Warehouse production studio at 907 W. Britton in northwest Okc. Tickets are $5.50 or $4.50 for prepaid groups of fifteen or more, and can be purchased at the door or reserved by calling 848-SHOW.
