Conservatory Presents 'The Little Prince' March 29-30
The Little Prince runs March 29-30.

The Webster University Conservatory of Theatre Arts presents "The Little Prince" March 29-30 on Stage III.

Written by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar and adapted from the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, "The Little Prince" tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted aviator whose sputtering plane strands him in the Sahara Desert and a mysterious, regal "little man" who appears and asks him to "Please, sir, draw me a sheep."

During their two weeks together in the desert, the Little Prince tells the Aviator about his adventures through the galaxy. The Little Prince talks to everyone he meets: a garden of roses, the Snake and a Fox who wishes to be tamed. From each he gains a unique insight which he shares with the Aviator: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly." "What is essential is invisible to the eye."

Critical Acclaim

“Not only does it clearly capture the tale of a man whose creativity was crushed in childhood only to re-emerge at a moment of great stress, but The Little Prince deftly illuminates Saint-Exupery's themes of the meaning of love, the opposing pulls of solitude and companionship, and man's relationship to the universe itself.” -Chicago Sun Times
