The Emperor’s New Clothes Cast

Jing Mai (The Emperor of China)The “Emperor” of the title; silly and vain, but with a heart of gold.

Sing Hi (The Dowager Empress) The Dame; with the usual array of completely ridiculous outfits - from “Chinese” clothes to “anything goes”!

Ting Ling (Handmaiden to the Empress) Female counterpart to Feng Yu, but not as daft and a bit more streetwise; even her costumes should be almost identical to his.

Prince Cheng (The Emperor’s Younger Brother)  
Our Principal Boy, brave to the point of stupidity and all tongue-tied when romance rears its head

Feng Yu (Prince Cheng’s Servant) Male or Female; the “Daft Laddie” character, usually on the receiving end of pratfalls and the butt of all the comedy from the Dame and the Comedy Baddies; an array of silly costumes.

General Tao Yan (A Villainous Warlord) Our Principal Villain, with a wicked gleam in his eye; a large and overbearing bully, yet has a strong bond to his only daughter.

Zhan Shi (The General’s Daughter) Our Principal Girl; our Villain’s daughter; practical, brave and slightly more intelligent than Prince Cheng.

Wushu & Gung Po - “Comedy Baddies”; Male or Female; comical, both in looks and outfits – especially in their guise as “Tailors”, where they can be as outrageous as the comedy dictates.

Li Chi (A Magical Storyteller) Elderly, with long white hair and beard.

Chorus (Adult) Citizens of Peking Courtiers, Imperial Soldiers, Tao Yan’s Henchmen & Lion Dancers.

Chorus (Children) Chinese Peasants & Courtiers.
