CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

This production of The Little Prince is experimental in nature and the characters are actively portrayed from both center stage and behind the scenes, through physical acting and movement as well as puppetry. Some of the performers will be physical actors in the more traditional sense and are:

THE AVIATOR: Male 30+

THE LITTLE PRINCE: (double cast) Non-gender specific, aged 8-12

THE ROSE: Female 14+, also part of ensemble

THE SNAKE: Non-gender specific, wise goddess archetype

THE FOX: Non-gender specific; Age: timeless. Fox is the heart of the story. 

ADULT ENSEMBLE: All genders ages 15+, capable of delivering lines confidently, responsible and capable of manipulating heavier scenery, props, or physically supporting other actors and performers. Capable of stage movement/dance/ puppet manipulation

YOUTH ENSEMBLE: All genders, ages 8-14. This is to double cast for 6 to 8 roles. The youth ensemble is ever present, manipulating scarves to create a sunset, twinkling lights to create a starry sky, or gloves to create baobabs on the Prince’s home planet of Asteroid B-612. Dancers who have stage experience but have never delivered lines are encouraged, but dance training is not a pre-requisite. Ability to pantomime and comfortable with creative movement/ puppetry; possessing big imaginations and ability to work as a team – all a must!
