"A multilayered tale that awakens the child tucked inside all of us" – Cape Cod Times
"There aren’t many plays that can hold the attention of both children and serious adult theatre patrons the way this play can" – Baton Rouge Advocate
The Little Prince has a rich history and has had a profound effect on people all over the world. First published in 1943, The Little Prince is the most famous work of French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Translated into more than 250 languages and dialects (as well as Braille), the novella is the fourth most-translated book in the world. Selling nearly two million copies annually, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published. If that’s not enough, The Little Prince was voted the “Best Book of the 20th Century” in France.
“For children, the grown-up world can be a confusing place that is full of conflicting information,” said director Darryl B. Hovis, who is also Chance’s TYA Producing Associate. “Everything that they are praised for as children is dismissed as adults. The Little Prince explores this theme. It is a children’s story very much for adults. It is about rediscovering our creativity that we had as children. It is about looking underneath to discover the true meaning of things.”
The Little Prince will preview from February 17 through February 25; regular performances will begin February 25 and continue through March 5 at Chance Theater @ Bet te Aitken theater arts Center on the Fyda-Mar Stage.
