Theatre Collingwood (and Compass Theatre Productions) is thrilled to be presenting the production of The Little Prince, from November 13-16, 2013 in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre at 65 Simcoe Street in Collingwood.
This play by Antoine de Saint-Exupery is an original translation and stage adaptation by Luciana Burcheri. The captivating story is about a pilot who crashes in the Sahara Desert. He is stranded but discovers he is not alone. He is surprised to meet the Little Prince from asteroid B612, who has been on a quest throughout the galaxy. They become friends as the Little Prince charms him with tales of encounters with those he met along the way and shares the secrets he has learned that make him ready to embark on his journey home. Directed by Jane Spence, this enchanting production is sure to capture the imagination of all ages.
Performances are being held at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on November 13th, 14th & 15th and will be geared towards school age children. Teachers who attend the performance with an elementary or secondary school class will be given a curriculum based education package to help them further explore the story with their students. For schools, tickets are at a reduced price of $10 a student (includes HST) and teachers are admitted free. There will be a valuable and informative 15 minute Â Â "Q & A" session with the actors and crew following the school shows. On Saturday, November 16th, Theatre Collingwood is holding performances at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for the public. Tickets are $15 (plus HST) for the public shows.
The public is also welcome to attend the school shows provided seating is available. People are asked to book early as seating is limited. "I encourage schools to take advantage of this wonderful group of talented artists who will be visiting our town. Elementary students will enjoy this delightful and highly regarded story that speaks to care and consideration of our planet and others in our lives. High school drama and English students will be inspired by the talents of these wonderful young actors and will also benefit from the opportunity to be so close to the production in our intimate studio theatre. French students will be familiar with this extremely well loved French story, that is now translated to English", said Erica Angus, Executive Director.
