Adapted from the timeless classic book for dreamers of all ages, The Little Prince follows an aviator who crash-landed in the Sahara Desert where he meets a little prince who loves a rose from a distant world.

As they adventure together to far off planets, the little prince reminds the aviator and all of us that “the most beautiful things in life cannot be seen but must be felt with the heart.”

Told through puppetry, drawing, music and magical stagecraft, this imaginative production is directed by Artistic Director Caitlin Lowans (Lumberjacks in Love, A Christmas Carol), in collaboration with the delightful puppet artistry of Katy Williams Design (The Mitten, Snowy Tales).
