When Ophelia and her family move to a new house by the seaside, she is feeling alone and unimpressed by her new surroundings...until she assembles her new friend, Olivetti, the robot. Together the pair faces daring rescues, local bullies and the sea! Children will discover that we’re all just made from pieces, and that when we feel less than whole we can find – or make – a part that fits!

The Emperor's New Clothes is a co-production with LCCC Theatre Department 

When two strangers arrive in the city of Logos, they call attention to themselves by claiming to be able to make the most magnificent and magical clothing. Emperor Caecus cannot resist such a claim, especially when he finds out that the magic in the cloth means that those who are unfit for their position cannot see the garments made from the fabric. The ensuing silliness can only be sorted out by the most intelligent and sensible person in the empire, a child name Captiosus. This adaptation is written by Cleveland playwright, Erin E. Dolan!
