Synopsis

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.

This musical includes the optional use of a CD of incidental music which brings a heartfelt, lyrical quality to the production. A demonstration and performance CD set is available. These professionally mastered CDs are a must for anyone producing The Little Prince, both musical and non-musical versions. Each set includes a performance CD and an instructional demo CD which walks you step-by-step through the more than 30 sound and music cues of varying lengths, teaching you how to incorporate the performance CD into your production.

Media Reviews

"This [musical] goes straight to the heart." -New York Newsday

"This is an adaptation the Saint Exupery himself would embrace. Perhaps like the Little Prince, he's looking down from some star and applauding." -United Press International
