The Little Prince

Little Prince

One of the joys of the National Children’s Theatre is that their shows have as much appeal for the adults as for the children.  This time, perhaps, artistic director Francois Theron may have slightly overreached the adult appeal and as a result the very little ones became restless.  Part of the problem is that The Little Prince is really not a children’s story.  It is one for adults.

I loved, loved, loved this show and the twincesses, nearly six, did enjoy it without becoming restless, although the smaller ones were a problem.

If you have never read the The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry , a French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator, then you will want to remedy this after seeing this beautiful work.  If you have read it in the far off past you will want to renew your acquaintanceship with this book.

Once again a theatrical joy!
