THE LITTLE PRINCE –January 12th
Based on Bristol Riverside Theatre's production originally directed by Scott Hitz
All grown-ups were children once, although few of us remember the wonderment of childhood. This astonishing and beautiful tale will remind you! A pilot crashes in the Sahara desert and while frantically trying to repair his wrecked plane he is interrupted by the apparition of a little boy who asks him to draw a sheep. As absurd as it seems, a thousand miles from all inhabited regions and in danger of death, he takes out a scrap of paper and a pen. And so begins their adventure.
An astonishing new take on this classic story, often assumed to be for children. The Little Prince is actually a tale for all ages about understanding how to laugh, love and cry again. In association with Emmy Award Winning puppet designer Michael Schupbach, and Monkey Boys Productions (puppet builders on the West End production of Avenue Q and the most recent Broadway production/tour of Little Shop of Horrors) this beautiful new production uses inventive puppets, live actors, original music and magnificent design to bring to life the heart-warming story of the Little Prince who gains rare and unique insights into love, loss, and laughter. This Little Prince is a multi-layered visual feast to awaken the child tucked away inside us all.
