Cape Fear Regional Theatre's "The Little Prince" by Saint-Expery

SEPTEMBER 19 - OCTOBER 6, 2013 | Cape Fear Regional Theatre - Fayetteville, NC

Directed by Tom Quaintance | Choreographed by Carl Flink


The Little Prince speaks to the innocent in all of us: challenging our perspective, opening our eyes and bringing us back to the heart of what truly matters. Written for adults in the form of a children’s fable, this beautiful new production uses theatrical storytelling, original music, puppetry and masks to bring to life the heart-warming story that is a true tale for all ages. A multi-layered visual feast, The Little Prince is one of the most beloved books of all time. In his dedication, Author Saint-Exupéry wrote: “All grown-ups were once children—although few of them remember it.” Written in 1943 in French, The Little Prince has sold over 80 million copies in almost 200 languages.

The Little Prince is well known as a favorite of children worldwide. But Cape Fear Regional Theatre Artistic Director Tom Quaintance said its appeal is not limited to the young set. The theater is presenting a stage version of the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry book as the opening play of its 2013-14 season.

“While I hope parents and grandparents bring their kids to this show, I also hope people just come,” Quaintance said. “It is not just for kids at all.”

Seven actors play 20 different characters in the play.
