STAGE ARTZ IS EXTREMELY PROUD TO ANNOUNCE ITS NEXT CHARITY FAMILY MUSICAL.
THE AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE OF ‘THE EMPEROR’S NEW CLOTHES’ !!!
Each year, Stage Artz Theatre Company and Stage Artz Performing Arts School
combine to produce a family musical to raise money for The Children’s
Hospital at Westmead. Currently, Stage Artz has raised over $93,000 for the
kids at Westmead. With this year’s production, the Australian Premiere of
The Emperor’s New Clothes, Stage Artz is hoping to raise enough money to
bring the total donation to over $100,000.00.
Alan Schmuckler (a Chicago-based composer/lyricist being hailed as the
future Stephen Sondheim) and David Holstein (script writer currently writing
for the hit television series Weeds; his plays have been produced in New
York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Edinburgh & Sydney) have joined
forces to create a tuneful contemporary spin on the classic tale. The
Emperor’s New Clothes enjoyed a critically acclaimed premiere production at
the Tony-winning Chicago Shakespeare Theatre in 2010.
We are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to stage this production.
The script and score are both brilliant – extremely clever and funny. We are
so honoured and grateful to Dave Holstein and Alan Schmuckler for giving us
the opportunity to stage the Australian Premiere of The Emperor’s New
Clothes. and the WORLD PREMIERE of the new large-cast version of the show.
It will be an amazing experience for everyone involved. ~ Sam Neaves
