November 12 - December 31, 2019


Run Time is 60 minutes with no intermission

An Excelsior Entertainment Production

Directed by Eric Morris

The incomparably imaginative creators of Seussical, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, bring one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved tales to life in The Emperor's New Clothes.  This winsome musical is a crowd-pleaser for all ages.

Fourteen-year-old Emperor Marcus the 3rd is nervous to take the throne. Deciding that he can only gain confidence by dressing in the finest attire, Marcus commands his Royal Clothesmaker to fashion him in the most royal wardrobe. Taking advantage of Marcus' uncertainty and immaturity, a Swindler promises to make magic clothes that are "invisible to fools, liars, and anyone you should ignore," for a large and hefty price. Only Arno, the simple-hearted mop boy, can help Marcus out of this royal mess and teach him an important lesson about outward appearance.


Over the past two years, Eric has found a wonderful artistic home at the Old Log.  Audiences have seen him break four pianos as Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet, entertain brides and grooms as Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer, and swindle the rich as Freddy Benson in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.  During those two years at the Old Log, Eric has also produced a few concerts, stage managed a Dragon, turned microphones on and off,  took some Instagram pictures, and sold some tickets.  Eric is thrilled to embark on his next Old Log journey of assembling a team of wonderful collaborators and mounting a music-theater production.

When not at the Old Log, Eric spends tons of time working with Nautilus Music-Theater in St. Paul.  Nautilus is dedicated to exploring the intricacies of the music-theater art form as well as developing singer-actors for success in that field.  With Nautilus, Eric has also worked on the development of brand new music-theater pieces such as “TWISTED APPLES: Tales from Winesburg, Ohio.”  Eric has also participated in their Wesley Balk Opera/Music-Theatre Institute as a director and a performer.

Eric has collaborated with dozens of theatres in the Twin Cities and all over the country.  Eric has a BFA in Musical Theater from Ithaca College.
