The Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway will present an adaptation of the children's play, "The Emperor's New Clothes" at varying times and dates in March. The UCPAC website describes the play as a "funny re-telling of the Hans Christian Anderson story. The vain and childish emperor is duped by two schemers who convince him they can make him a unique suit of clothes that is not only beautiful, but magical [and] it can only be
seen by those who are honest. Afraid he won’t be able to see the clothes himself, the emperor enlists the aid of two ministers, who complicate matters when they are wary to admit they cannot see it themselves."
The performance schedule is as follows:
March 3 at noon;
March 3 at 3 pm;
