Remaining tickets may be purchased in the Farragut Building ballroom, beginning 30 minutes prior to each show. All seating is general admission.

“The Little Prince” is one of the world’s most famous books for children, having been translated into over 40 languages.
Thought-provoking, thrilling, and funny, “The Little Prince” tells the story of an Aviator who crashes his plane into the Sahara Desert, where he is surprised to find a little boy wandering near the crash site.
As the Aviator attempts to repair his plane, he learns that this is no ordinary little boy - but a “little prince” from Asteroid B-612 who has also fallen to Earth. “The Little Prince” is a timeless spiritual allegory for people of all faiths. Through a series of outer space encounters and Earthly adventures with The Fox, The Snake, and The Desert Rose, the Little Prince teaches the Aviator about the power of faith, the triumph of beauty over ignorance, and the spiritual victory of good over evil, making “The Little Prince” the perfect holiday experience for people of all beliefs.

Twelve-year-old Alex Drinnen will play “The Little Prince,” with Ben Croisdale appearing as The Aviator. UT student Harrison Young plays The Aviator (As A Grown-Up). Fifteen other children, age 9 to 15, play the various characters who meet The Little Prince, including Sophia Abouelata, Marisa Beeler, Mac Bower, Amelia Bryant, Abigail Coughlin, Gregory Croisdale, English Dougherty, Tessa Goodnight, Caroline Hartley, Emily Hartley, Amber Latham, Graham Marema, Juliana Pulsinelli, Sarah Smith, and Rowan Young.
