The timeless tale of The Little Prince, has been adapted into a whimsical children's stage performance by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre.
The Little Prince at Frankston Arts Centre
The delightful story, originally published by French author and poet Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in 1943, is one of the most widely read books in history. Over 140 million copies of the book have been sold worldwide, and the tale has been translated in more than 250 languages.
The story follows a curious Little Prince, who leaves his tiny planet in search of adventure. His journey takes him far, far away, across the universe, where he meets; a king, a conceited man, a drunkard, a lamplighter, and a geographer all before arriving on planet Earth.
On Earth, the Little Prince talks to a Fox and meets an aviator who has crashed his plane in the desert. Will the Little Prince make it home?
The delightful children's story, has many underlying messages for a child growing up in a complex grown-up world. Such messages are relayed in the puppet stage performance of The Little Prince, thanks to Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, on tour from Western Australia.
The Spare Parts production, showing at Frankston Arts Centre on Tuesday 21 June at 11am and 5pm, brings intricately hand-crafted puppets to life on stage.
