THE EMPEROR's NEW CLOTHES
Musical for the Holiday season.
Matinees: November 12- December 31, 2019

The incomparably imaginative creators of Seussical, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, bring one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved tales to life in The Emperor's New Clothes. This winsome musical is a crowd-pleaser for all ages.
Fourteen-year-old Emperor Marcus the 3rd is nervous to take the throne. Deciding that he can only gain confidence by dressing in the finest attire, Marcus commands his Royal Clothesmaker to fashion him in the most royal wardrobe. Taking advantage of Marcus' uncertainty and immaturity, a Swindler promises to make magic clothes that are "invisible to fools, liars, and anyone you should ignore," for a large and hefty price. Only Arno, the simple-hearted mop boy, can help Marcus out of this royal mess and teach him an important lesson about outward appearance.

The Danger Committee returns for a ninth year in a row with the latest in their smash hit holiday series, A Stocking Full of Awesome IX: It's a Wonderful Knife! Reynaldo, Bald Guy, and Other One are bringing their Twin Cities holiday tradition to the Minnsky Theatre with plenty of laughs and gasps for the whole family. Sharp knives combine with even sharper wit for an evening unlike any other holiday show you’ve ever seen. See what happens when two world champion jugglers team up with the one of the world’s premier knife throwers to create a Christmas classic. Come see some definite comedy and possible tragedy…just like Christmas!

BOOK EARLY! TICKETS FOR OUR HOLIDAY SHOWS SELL OUT FAST!

VIP Couch Tickets get you luxurious, reserved chaise seating right next to the stage! You also get Priority Seating an hour before showtime and a meet and greet with The Danger Committee during their pre-show warm ups/stupid antics. However, there are only a few of these tickets available per performance.

Premium Tickets also include one hour Priority Seating and the meet and greet with The Danger Committee 45 minutes before the start of the show, but in a regular old boring chair.

General Admission Tickets gets you seating 30 minutes before the start of the show.

Here is what people are saying about The Danger Committee:

Examiner.com: "A singularly unique production in which extremely sharp repartee duels with extremely sharp flying objects."

MinnPost.com: "Very mean, and very funny."

City Pages: "The mad trio of jugglers...a bracing piece that highlights the very different talents of the performers."

Star Tribune: "Juggling tricks draw crowds to their show. But it's the witty banter and endless derring-do that keep fans "oohing" and "wowing."

Hope to see you there!
