Children’s classic tale on stage at Kingston Arts
10 May 2016
Classic children’s book The Little Prince will come to life on stage at Kingston Arts in June.
Presented by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, The Little Prince is sure to delight the young and young-at-heart.
Adapted from one of the most widely read books in history – with over 140 million copies sold worldwide in more than 250 languages, The Little Prince tells the story of a curious prince who leaves his tiny home planet and journeys across the universe, discovering that adults have very strange ideas about the things that really matter.
Associate Director of Spare Parts and director of the production, Michael Barlow, said that The Little Prince reminds us of the magic of imagination.
“The work speaks strongly about what really matters in life – it isn’t expensive or flashy things that have the greatest value, it’s the people we form relationships with,” he said.
Exquisitely hand-carved puppets bring to life the classic characters Little Prince, Rose, the Fox and the Snake that will charm young audiences. Founded in 1981, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre is Australia’s champion of puppetry and a leader in puppetry internationally.
Kingston Mayor Tamsin Bearsley said the production was a fantastic opportunity for parents to introduce their children to the world of theatre. “I encourage schools, parents and grandparents to come along to this beautiful production that will engage and inspire our young people,” Cr Bearsley said.
