All grown-ups were children once, although few of us remember the wonderment of childhood. This astonishing and beautiful tale will remind you! A biplane crashes in the Sahara Desert. The pilot recognizes the severity of his situation and springs to action. He is frantically trying to repair his wrecked plane when a small boy interrupts and asks him to draw a sheep. Who is this mysterious child, where did he come from, and what is he doing so far from civilization?

The Little Prince is an enchanting theatrical production for all ages. In this unique take on the classic tale, audience members young and old are invited to experience the wonderment of childhood as The Little Prince transports them to exotic worlds and introduces them to whimsical characters. Meet a bombastic king, a talking rose and a cheerful fox who is eager to be domesticated. Through the eyes of the Little Prince, the pilot gains unique insights into love, loss, and laughter.

This magical Swazzle production features a script adapted for the stage by Rick Cummings and John Scoullar, based on the book The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The show utilizes handcrafted puppets, live actors, original music and innovative projection techniques to bring the heart-warming story of The Little Prince to life.

Morning show appropriate for Grades 4 — 7. Evening show appropriate for all ages.
