Written by French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery in 1943, The Little Prince is apparently the most read and translated book in the French Language. An aviator himself, Saint-Exupery drew on his experience in writing the tale, which sees a pilot stranded in the desert encounter a prince who has fallen to Earth from an asteroid. Ostensibly a children’s book, The Little Prince does offers some reasonably sophisticated insights on the nature of human existence.
Feb. 26-28 at 7:30 p.m. Do It With Class Young People’s Theatre will be presenting their interpretation of Saint-Exupery’s whimsical tale at Shumiatcher Hall at Conexus Arts Centre. Tickets range between $10.75-$29.50 and can be obtained by calling 525-9999.
