“The thing that is important is the thing that is not seen,” says the title character in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novel. On December 2nd and 3rd, seventh and eighth graders performed a theatrical adaptation of The Little Prince.

The play begins with a pilot who crash-lands in the middle of the Sahara Desert. He is approached by a tiny man who claims that he is from another planet. Throughout the play, the tiny man, known as the Little Prince, talks with the pilot about his journey to earth and his misfortune with adults. Audiences watch the Prince travel from planet to planet. He tames a fox and meets a bunch of talking roses, but the message of the play is hidden beneath the props and actors.

This play captures the sadness of growing up, familiarity, and friendship. The Little Prince shows that it can be hard to maintain relationships with people. The play explains that there can be enlightenment through exploration and that relationships teach responsibility. The Little Prince also displays the negative effects of narrow-mindedness.

Therefore, it is necessary for the audiences to have an open mind when they come to see The Little Prince. Lily Yanagimoto ‘23, who plays the prince, has hip-length red hair that she will have to fit into a blonde wig. She says, “I’ve enjoyed myself a lot, and I’m very excited to perform! Hopefully, from a play like this, you will learn something from the cast, and maybe even visit the mysterious land of tears.
