(Carson, CA) –California State University, Dominguez Hills’ (CSUDH) Department of Theatre and Dance will perform a musical version of the family classic, “The Little Prince,” directed by theatre faculty member Kelly Herman.
Based on the famous novella by French writer, poet, and aviator Antoine de Saint Exupéry, and adapted into a musical by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar, the magical story tells of a pilot whose plane fails, leaving him stranded in the Sahara desert. But he meets a young prince who has traveled to Earth from a far-away planet. What follows is a charming but philosophical examination of the pitfalls of living as an adult.
“’The Little Prince’ speaks to our basic humanity,” says Kelly. “Because at our core we are both the Prince: earnest, imaginative and hopeful, and the Aviator: alone, searching, and adrift on a sea of longing for true love.”
In addition to musical direction by Jared Scott and choreography by dance faculty member Marco Carreon, the CSUDH Theatre and Dance production of “The Little Prince” features student-designed puppetry and animated projections.
Performances will be held in the Edison Studio Theatre on November 9, 16 and 17 at 8 p.m., and on November 11, 12 and 18 at both 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for General Admission, $10 for students and seniors, and $7 for children under 12 years old. Group rates are available.
