PORTSMOUTH — New Hampshire Theatre Project’s 25th anniversary season continues with an original adaptation of Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s beloved classic “The Little Prince”.
Created by Genevieve Aichele, CJ Lewis and Shay Willard, “Finding the Prince” follows three soldiers and one journalist who have crashed in the desert during a nameless war. As they struggle to survive, they begin to read a tattered novel given to one of them by a dying soldier. Each character begins a journey towards coming to terms with their own “little prince,” the deepest, sweetest part of us who knows that “what is most important is unseen.”
“Finding the Prince” incorporates live action, projected images, video sequences, music and movement. Interviews with military vets who have had war experience in the desert are also included. This production represents the first original piece created completely by the professional company, using the collaborative process that is the hallmark of NHTP.
“Finding the Prince” is recommended for ages 13 and up. The production runs January 10-26 (Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.), at the West End Studio Theatre, 959 Islington Street in Portsmouth. General admission is $24.00, $20.00 for students and seniors. For reservations and information, call 603-431-6644 ext. 5, or email email@example.com.
