The Little Prince heads to Cape Town 19 & 20 October !
After acclaimed performances at the National Arts Festival, Vrystaat Arts Festival and the South African Book Fair, the Kwasha! Theatre Company continues its successful tour of Saint Exupéry’s beloved tale, The Little Prince around South Africa.
The show has already been seen by more than 1500 people and has received standing ovations and glowing reviews. Described as “one of the best festivals shows I have ever seen” by Cue reviewer Sam Spiller and as a “must-see” by Bloemfontain Courant reviewer Jeretha Oosthuizen, The Little Prince is only half way through its magical tour and is coming to Cape Town on 19 and 20 October at The Magnet Theatre, thanks to the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and the Market Theatre Foundation, with the support of Mazars.
The Little Prince, directed by Mwenya Kabwe and Clara Vaughan, is a magical African inspired adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic fable. This world-famous, timeless story celebrates its 75th anniversary this year – and is still as vivid as ever! It is brought to life in this exciting production using an innovative and playful fusion of art forms - storytelling, music and circus - in multiple languages, creating a unique South African production of this French masterpiece, for adults and children alike.

“Kabwe and Vaughan have taken this piece of surreal, imaginative literature, and have not only successfully translated it into a complete visual medium, but also kept the imagination and raw wonder of the subject matter intact.”
“it propels children’s theatre back to a state of relevance, and being taken seriously.”
“The youth deserve good theatre. We need more shows like The Little Prince.”
