The Little Prince - The Musical

January 19 - February 28, 2016

Theatre Calgary in Association with Lamplighter Drama, London, UK,
presents the World Premiere of

The Little Prince
- The Musical

A pilot crashes his plane in the Sahara Desert, where he meets a young prince from a distant asteroid who tells him a story of life among the stars. The Little Prince is one of the most universally cherished books of all time, selling millions of copies worldwide. Now it comes to life in a spectacular new musical celebration of the imagination and the artist within us all.

Theatre Calgary, in association with Lamplighter Drama (London, UK) is thrilled to announce an international collaboration to present the World Premiere of the family musical The Little Prince, based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, adapted by Nicholas Lloyd Webber and James D. Reid as part of our 2015-16 season.

After an inaugural staging at the Lyric Theatre (Belfast) in 2011, The Little Prince adapters Lloyd Webber and Reid have significantly developed and expanded the musical, with this new version to receive its world premiere at Theatre Calgary.

This musical is a huge explosion of wondrous sounds and images. It's unusual and totally enchanting. Watch as a pilot and a little prince discover all sorts of fascinating characters including a sultry singing rose, a dangerous snake, and a wise fox. The composers have created a nonstop singing, dancing, and dreaming musical that is perfect for both adults and children. And Theatre Calgary is presenting the world (and galaxy) premiere!

In total, it has been seven years in the development and making, but this accounts for the care and detail required when tackling such an enigmatic and well loved story. The Little Prince is a spellbinding and captivating story, moving through space and time and with an array of weird and wonderful characters. I hope Calgary 
audiences will be entranced and moved by our telling of this famous story, in collaboration with Theatre Calgary

We look forward to returning to Calgary, having been so warmly and generously received back when we visited Theatre Calgary in 2013. It's very humbling to think that our new show will see its debut in your stunning theatre

Calgary is lucky to have this. Theatre Calgary is part of something big here.
