The show has already been seen by more than 1500 people and has received standing ovations and glowing reviews. Described as ‘one of the best festivals shows I have ever seen’ by Cue reviewer Sam Spiller and as a ‘must-see’ by Bloemfontein Courant reviewer Jeretha Oosthuizen, The Little Prince is only half way through its magical tour. It will run in Cape Town, Sasolburg, and Durban in October, before returning for a season at the Ramolao Makhene Theatre in Johannesburg in November, thanks to the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and the Market Theatre Foundation, with the support of Mazars.
     The Little Prince, directed by Mwenya Kabwe and Clara Vaughan, is a magical African inspired adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic fable and is showing at the Market Theatre Laboratory from 8 – 25 November 2018. This world-famous, timeless story celebrates its 75th anniversary this year – and is still as vivid as ever! It is brought to life in this exciting production using an innovative and playful fusion of art forms – storytelling, music and circus – in multiple languages, creating a unique South African production of this French masterpiece, for adults and children alike.
