Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THIS Christmas, Omnibus Theatre premieres a new stage adaptation of The Little Prince, one of the best-selling and most translated novellas ever published. It runs from December 4 to December 30, 2019.

The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched. They are felt with the heart.

On a quest to return to the asteroid that he calls home, The Little Prince encounters a stranded pilot and her crashed plane. Their magical adventure is one that takes them across the galaxy, from the Sahara desert to the moon.

Along the way, they meet fantastical and mysterious characters including the Rose, the wise Snake who sees all, the streetwise Fox who won’t be tamed and the King without any subjects.

A brilliant blend of enchanting storytelling, puppetry, projections and live music, The Little Prince is directed by Artistic Director Marie McCarthy. The production will be staged in an innovative way bringing the audience right into the heart of the action.

The cast includes Comfort Fabian, Vera Chok and Royce Cronin.

This Omnibus production, inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s childhood classic, which has sold more than 150 million copies world-wide and been translated into over 300 languages, has been adapted for the stage by critically-acclaimed storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton.

Omnibus Theatre’s Artistic Director, Marie McCarthy said: “We are really thrilled to be staging this cherished story that has such enduring appeal. It speaks on many different levels in ways that both adults and children can relate to. There are so many iconic images and magical elements in this production. My hope is that audiences will be taken on an emotional journey with the little prince, discover the beauty of friendship and enter a world of imagination and laughter.”

The Little Prince is recommended for ages 4 – 104 years.
