What really matters, and who gets to decide?

Adapted from the classic book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Saint-Exupéry’s delightful tale follows a curious prince who leaves his tiny planet to go on an extraordinary adventure across the universe, where he discovers that the really important things in life can only be recognised with the heart.

With its timeless message about the importance of forming friendships, The Little Prince is an adventure story that celebrates the beauty of imagination and will have audiences questioning what really matters, and who gets to decide? With themes that have resonated for generations, The Little Prince will charm children and the inner child of adults.
