Celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the beloved classic The Little Prince!  Performed by PTC’s Tiny Thespians and Youth Troupe, The Little Prince brings the storybook to life on our main stage in a production that is family friendly and engaging for young and old alike.  The Little Prince tells the story of a world-weary aviator whose plane crashes, stranding him in the middle of the Sahara Desert. When a mysterious, regal little boy appears and asks him to draw a sheep, the aviator is annoyed and distracted from his crisis – unaware that he is about to have a transforming experience. By learning that ‘what is essential is invisible to the eye,’ the aviator comes to a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, and love again.

The Little Prince will feature the following local stars:

Tiny Thespians:  Tala and Walker Bayless, Sophia Crespo and Sophie Baker (Bangor), Lydia Drisko (Carmel)

Youth Troupe:  Jonah and Asa Roberts, Madison Freeman (Newburgh), Matthew Tozer, Nathan Manaker (Orono), Ian Buck (Glenburn), Byron Sockalexis (Indian Island),  Nathan and Sasha Sykes, Molly Hagerty, Sophia Mullins (Bangor) Ethan DeMerchant (Old Town), Emma Campbell (Winterport), Lana Sabbagh, Anna Loeb (Brewer), Paige and Terra Malkow (Hampden).

 

The Little Prince will be performed April 26 and 27 at 6 p.m. and April 28 at 2 p.m. and is appropriate for all ages.  Tickets are $5 for children 12 and under and $10 for adults. Tickets can be purchased by calling our box office at 942-3333 or online at penobscottheatre.org.
