Boom! ‘The Little Prince’, presented by Monkey Baa Theatre Company and Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry STARTS TODAY! Still hoping to be magically transported to Sydney for this! Next time I am in Sydney I am making it a priority to visit Monkey Baa Theatre Company as I only ever hear brilliant things about them!
Are you going to see ‘The Little Prince’? Do you have your tickets yet? Do let me know how it is. There really is nothing better than performances based on books or stories, for young and old alike. For young audiences, a pre-reading of the book can help with understanding the narrative structure of the theatre production and bring the book to life in a way that is magical and will stay with them forever.
“…when you look up at night, it will be as if all the stars are laughing…”
With its timeless message about the importance of friendship, The Little Prince is an adventure story that celebrates the richness of human feeling and imagination.
One of the most widely read books in history – 140 million copies sold worldwide and printed in more than 250 languages and dialects including braille – Saint-Exupéry’s exquisite tale tells the story of a curious prince who leaves his tiny home planet and journeys across the universe, discovering that adults have very strange ideas about the things that really matter.
Associate Director of Spare Parts and director of the production, Michael Barlow, said that The Little Prince is an imaginative and vivid work, continually reminding us of the magic of the imagination.
“The work speaks strongly about what really matters in life. It isn’t expensive or flashy things that have the greatest value, it’s the people we form relationships with,” he said.
Jiri Zmitko’s design cleverly reveals the tiny world of the Prince, the Sahara desert and the stars of the night sky. His hand carved puppets of the Fox, the Snake, the Little Prince and the Rose, are characters sure to live on in the audience’s imagination.”
Lee Buddle’s music creates a mood of mystery – and is so beautifully performed by world-renowned pianist Ross Bolleter – Karen Cook’s lighting design transports us from the world we know to the magical realm of the Prince and performers Jacob Lehrer and Jessica Lewis have endeared themselves to audiences with great charm and humour.”
At 50 minutes and suitable for ages four and above, The Little Prince is a special experience for families to share.
