Presented by Luca Silvestrini’s Protein
The classic tale re-imagined on stage for children and their grown-ups!
“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Find out how the Little Prince leaves behind his own tiny asteroid and beloved rose and journeys through the universe, coming face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups! Have you ever heard of a king who reigns over nothing? Or a businessman obsessively counting stars?
Once on planet Earth, the Little Prince is welcomed by a mysterious snake and a truly wise and friendly fox before encountering the lone pilot. Together they discover the power and beauty of friendship and the complexity of love.
Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince is brought to life using Protein’s award-winning mix of dance, humour and spoken word. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra and lighting by Jackie Shemesh, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.
Children must have a valid ticket and be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children under the recommended age may be admitted but will still require a child’s ticket. Baby on lap tickets (£1) are available on selected shows for 0-18months. Age ranges are provided as a guide and we ask you to consider whether a show is suitable for your child.
