Hiccup Theatre are very pleased to share our latest project with you!

The Emperor’s New Clothes
A Hiccup Theatre, Derby Theatre and Polka Theatre Production.
We bring you the greatest fake news story ever told!
The Emperor likes nothing more than a fashion parade and you are all invited to ohh and ahh at his latest eye-popping outfit. Meet the vain Emperor, the pandering advisors who offer uncritical support, and the crowd who fail to tell the truth, preferring lies to be told instead. Hilarious and heart-warming, magical and musical, The Emperors New Clothes is a stylish theatrical treat for all ages.

The award-winning Hiccup Theatre spin music, puppetry, BSL and storytelling into a very special yarn.

All performances will have fully integrated British Sign Language and Captioning.

Goldi Red & Gingerbread Album Cover

We are so thrilled to have been successful in Arts Council Emergency Funding to work with a whole team of creatives for the Goldi, Red & Gingerbread album project across 2020! Not only has our Artistic Director Ivan been busy recording, mixing, singing and working with the original cast members from the shows across the country, we have also collaborated with experts and incredible performers to create BSL interpreted videos for each song.

And if that wasn’t enough, we’re soon recording abridged tales of The Gingerbread Man, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and The Three Bears, which will be perfect for bedtime!

The BSL videos are available to watch NOW! for free right here on our website and also on our YouTube Channel. You can also find downloadable print at home lyric sheets for each song, so you can sing along!

Goldi, Red & Gingerbread, our album of 15  original songs from The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and The Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood is available NOW! On CD and MP3 download too!
