This version of the classic fairy tale sports many riotous comic roles including two tricky and endearing escaped convicts and the pair of bumbling detectives on their tail, a vain, clothes-horse of an emperor, his equally vain and bickering wife and daughters and many foolish ministers willing to do anything to keep their jobs. This makes it perfect for schools and theatre groups with lots of talented comic actors who want to have some outrageous fun. By the way, audiences love it.
