The Emperor's New Clothes Encounters of the Third Kind

Occidental Children's Theater


  • Location: Hillside Theater
  • Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
  • Price: $7-$10

Conceived and directed by Jaime Angell

The critically acclaimed Occidental Children’s Theater will celebrate its 19th year with a brand new story and three adventurous adaptations of traditional folktales for a seven-week outdoor run in the Remsen Bird Hillside Theater on the Occidental campus. Featuring alumni Tristan Waldron '12 and Claudia Restrepo '10; graduating seniors Lukecus King '14 and Sarah Martellaro '14; and students Savannah Gilmore '15 and Edward Jackson '16.

In about an hour, a cast of six will perform four energetic and funny stories without props, sets or special costumes, relying only on their acting and acrobatic skills. ”OCCIDENTAL Children’s Theater’s rambunctious charm hasn’t faded a whit …the company is still one of L.A.’s little gems, an acrobatic outdoor theater romp presented with imagination and whiz-bang physicality.” Lynne Heffley, Los Angeles Times, July 26, 2007.

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 10:00am, July 10 through August 23, 2014 in Hillside Theater. 

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children
