The Little Prince - A Musical

The Little Prince is a children’s book written by the French pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in the 1940s.  An outwardly simple story of the Little Prince’s travels from his home (asteroid B-612) to a number of planets, and finally to earth, it is also a poignant and philosophical tale.

The Little Prince has left his beloved Rose behind as he seeks an answer to his questions.  In meeting the occupants of different planets, The Little Prince learns that grown-ups are obsessed with things that seem of little importance to him.  He also learns, from a fox, that the truth can only be seen with the heart. 

The story is told by an Aviator, who meets The Little Prince after crashing his plane in the desert.  The Aviator becomes very fond of the Little Prince and his funny ways.  When the Prince leaves to go 'home' he offers the stars as a way for the Aviator to remember him. 

We have written a new translation of the original French book. 

This magical tale is an antidote to challenging times, and the perfect show for families keen to experience live theatre again.

We welcome expressions of interest from potential collaborators, venues, producers and music publishers to help bring this unique story to life, be it in theatre, film or televisual media.
