The Little Prince

Tickets are $7 each
McMillin Theater

This play 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, how he met the Lamplighter and the Businessman and the Geographer, and about his strained relationship with a very special flower on his own tiny planet. 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 Avatar: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.” “What is essential is invisible to the eye.” At length, both the “little man” and the Aviator must go home—each with a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, and love again.

The play adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver and Tumnus the Faun.

About Theater Works School Programs

Educators searching for arts integration programming that meets Common Core Standards are only a phone call away from affordable community resources.

Theater Works designs many of its productions with classroom integration in mind – from performances timed specifically so classrooms can attend during the school day, to study guides that teachers can download and present to their classrooms before the show and follow-up materials for student discussions after the performance.

Some productions offer teacher and student edition study guides that cover such subjects as the history of the shows to Vocabulary lessons for words found throughout the performances (fill in the blank and crossword puzzles, to information on the theatrical process and questions from the text of the play.

Both adults and youth learn best through participation and direct involvement. Using these materials teachers can help students gain an appreciation for theatre not just as a form of art but also English, History, Science, Math and other topics imperative to their social well-being.

These programs are developed so we can work together with educators to transform young people and communities through theatre arts.
