The Little Prince

Adapted by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar
Based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Original music by David Dabbon
Produced by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING, Woodstock, Illinois

January 18–March 4, 2018

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye"

In the middle of the Sahara Desert, a stranded aviator meets the Little Prince, a young boy from a small, faraway asteroid, and a dreamlike journey unfolds across a universe. A rose, a sheep, and an array of unusual adults on their own small planets spark wonder in Artistic Director Courtney Sale’s SCT directorial debut. Adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry classic novella, this treasured tale reminds us of the power of innocence and boundless love.
