PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED

Experience the magic of The Little Prince at Waterside Arts, in a collaboration between Lyngo and the Norwich Puppet Theatre. Enjoy a beautiful production based on the familiar tale of the most curious young prince, brought to life through mesmerising puppetry and stunning songs.

Follow the story of the little prince who falls to earth and stumbles across the Aviator. A heartwarming bond develops between the two, and through their adventures they discover what life is all about and the importance of looking beyond the surface to find genuine happiness.

In a world where sheep live on stars and eat roses, The Little Prince reminds us that just because something sounds completely absurd, it doesn’t mean it isn’t true – and most things in the world that really matter can only be understood with the heart.

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.” – The Little Prince (book), by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
