The Little Prince presented by Whitefish Theatre Company

February 25 - 28, March 4 - 6, 2016

Based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince is a timeless story of an unlikely friendship between an Aviator who crashes in the Sahara Desert and the innocent yet wise Little Prince who has fallen from the sky. The Little Prince tells the Aviator about his lonely asteroid B-612 and his adventures through the galaxy meeting the Lamplighter and the Businessman and the Geographer, and about his strained relationship with a very special flower on his own tiny planet. The Little Prince talks to everyone he meets: a garden of roses, the Snake and a Fox who wishes to be tamed. The Little Prince’s deceptively simple storytelling fills this whimsical tale with rich and timeless poetic wisdom and magical charm for audiences of all ages.
