The QC Theatre Workshop presents its new adaptation of the children’s book, “The Little Prince,” at the Beverly Arts Center (BAC), 2407 W. 111th St., with two performances on Saturday, June 22, at 1 and 7 p.m.
The family-friendly play uses masks, puppets and original music to actualize the beloved story.
“The Little Prince” is based on the 1943 book of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. The story quickly gained popularity as one of the best-selling and most translated books ever published.
Crashed in the Sahara desert, an aviator finds himself in the presence of a little prince from another planet. He discovers that the little prince has previously traveled to six different asteroids where he met eccentric characters including a king, a businessman and a lamplighter.
Through the little prince, his rose, the fox and the snake, the aviator learns important lessons about life and death and what makes relationships meaningful.
The stage production runs approximately 70 minutes with no intermission and is appropriate for all ages.
