This beloved classic now comes alive on stage in a magical full-length family musical. Filled with enchanting music and heart-felt lyrics, it has been touted by critics around the country for its sophisticated appeal to all ages. It tells the story of a world-weary aviator whose malfunctioning plane strands him on the Sahara Desert. When a mysterious, regal little boy appears and asks him to draw a sheep, the aviator is annoyed and distracted from his crisis—unaware that he is about to have a transforming experience. During their week in the desert the little prince tells him stories about his adventures through the galaxy and about his strained relationship with a special flower on his own tiny planet. He encourages the alienated aviator to document these tales by drawing once again as he had when he was a boy. By learning that "what is essential is invisible to the eye," the aviator comes to a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, and love again. This show with its unique features of live drawing as part of the action and a planetarium environment—provides a great deal of room for directorial concepts, allowing for either the most elaborate or simplest of productions.
