Auburn Area Community Theatre is bringing to life an enchanting stage adaptation of the beloved, classic novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince.
Inspired by Saint-Exupéry's own experience being stranded in the Sahara after a surviving a plane crash, this family-friendly tale for all ages tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted Aviator. The Aviator’s sputtering plane strands him in the Sahara Desert when a mysterious, regal "little man" appears and asks him to draw him a sheep. The Aviator obliges and the two travel the desert together. During their time together, the Little Prince tells the Aviator about his adventures through the galaxy, how he met 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 also talks to everyone he meets: a garden of roses, the Snake, and a Fox. From each interaction he gains a unique insight which he shares with the Aviator: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly." Eventually both the "little man" and the Aviator must go home—each with a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, and love. Join in on this imaginative, multi-media adventure!
