About the Show

When a lonely aviator crashes his plane into the middle of the Sahara Desert, he befriends a little prince from a faraway planet. While the Aviator works on his plane, the Little Prince tells him about his adventures around the galaxy and encourages his friend to reconnect with his inner child. Based on the beloved French novella by Antoine de-Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince is a magical and lyrical musical about friendship, innocence, and impulse to create.

Audition Procedure

Auditionees should pick one song and one monologue for their audition. They should come to the audition ready to perform these pieces. The song should be memorized. However, the monologue doesn’t need to be. You can choose whatever monologue and speak to you (regardless of age and gender). However, we do ask all actors who are interested in the role of the Little Prince to sing “Sunsets.”  

After actors have performed their songs and monologues, Andrea and Charles will lead the actors in a group movement audition.  

Please make sure you fill out the following audition form before your audition appointment: https://forms.office.com/r/6pn0JUTfMY.

Monologues (pick one) 
 
Rose  
Leave it. I suppose I must endure the presence of two or three caterpillars if I wish to be acquainted with the butterflies. It seems that they are very beautiful. And if not the caterpillars and the butterflies, who will I talk to? You’ll be far away. And as for any larger creatures, I’m not afraid. I have my thorns – to protect me. Don’t linger like this. You’ve decided to go now...so...Of course, I lov...(she cannot say Love). Goodbye. 
 
Little Prince (a short one for younger friends) 
I don’t believe you! Flowers are naïve creatures. They would never act out of spite. If they hurt you, it’s because they don’t understand. 
 
Little Prince 
You are not at all like my rose. As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one. You are beautiful, but you are empty. One could not die for you. You are like my fox when I first met him – like a hundred thousand other foxes. But now I have tamed him and made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world. To be sure, an ordinary passerby would think that my rose looked just like you – the rose that belongs to me. But she is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses because it is she that I have watered; because it is she that I have sheltered behind the screen; because it is for her that I have killed the caterpillars except the two or three we saved to become butterflies; because it is she that I have listened to when she asked questions, or grumbled, or even sometimes when she said nothing, because she is my rose. 
 
Aviator 
This, to me, is the loveliest and saddest landscape in the world. It is here that this little prince appeared on Earth and disappeared. Look at it carefully so that you will be sure to recognize it in case you travel some day to the African desert. And, if you should come upon this spot, please don’t hurry on. Wait for a time, exactly under the star. Then, if a little man appears who laughs, who has golden hair and who refuses to answer questions, you will know who he is. If this should happen, please – let me know he has come back.
