Join the Little Prince in this live stage show as he journeys through the exasperating world of grown-ups, meeting a king who reigns over nothing, a businessman obsessively counting stars and many more. Along the way he meets a lone pilot stranded in the desert and together they discover the power and beauty of friendship and the complexity of love.
“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
