The Little Prince
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved tale of a pilot and a young alien prince has been delighting readers since it was first published in 1943 and has since been translated into more than 250 languages, making it the most translated book outside of religious works. Even if you know The Little Prince (or Le Petit Prince in its original French) by heart, you have never seen it quite like this!
This brand new 70min long mini-musical adaptation under the pen and directorship of Elizma Badenhorst, with score by Wessel Odendaal, will have its South African premiere in Port Elizabeth, before embarking to Johannesburg where it will play Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre. Exupéry illustrated his novel himself and decided to omit any sketches of what the Pilot may have looked like. Badenhorst took her cue from the author and will feature the first female Pilot to portray the iconic role. With a timeless charm this family show tells the story of The Little Prince, who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the oddities of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal journey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.
Featuring a stellar cast of puppeteers and actors, this evergreen tale is told with the help and wonderment of shadow and Japanese Bunraku puppetry.
This production is not to be missed by young and old alike!
