EPIC Players Inclusion Company presents a neuro-inclusive adaptation of the classic tale by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. More…
"The Little Prince" tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted Aviator whose sputtering plane strands him in the Sahara Desert, where he meets a mysterious, regal young boy: the Little Prince. Over the course of the next eight days stranded in the desert, The Little Prince recounts the miraculous story of his life, while the Aviator reconnects with his lost youth. EPIC’s inclusive adaption employs a neuro-diverse cast who share the story of the Little Prince and his new friend and their adventures through the galaxy. Appropriate for kids and grown-ups of all ages.
"If there are any limitations on the abilities of this joyful company of actors performing 'The Little Prince,' none are apparent as each and every actor on stage carries out his or her part with vigor and humor. They catch the whimsy of Saint-Exupéry's metaphorical tale of an Aviator (William Ketter, combining thoughtfulness and passion) whose airplane goes down in the African desert during WW II where he meets a strange blonde lad who eventually changes his way of looking at the world."

"It is evident right off the bat that the standard these actors hold themselves to, independently and together as a team, is incredibly high. The story is taken seriously, but never to a degree of didacticism...No matter how pompous or petty some of these characters appear to be, they all feel palpable...Choosing to present characters rather than caricatures, the EPIC Players confidently add vivacity and verisimilitude to this already visceral story."

“A joyful adaptation of ‘The Little Prince’...Expectations of how disability might or might not manifest in performance should be left at the door; this is as varied and individual a cast as any other...There are delightful performances...One of ‘The Little Prince’s’ surprising joys, though, came post-curtain call, when EPIC’s artistic director Therrien invited cast members to speak about their experiences performing with the company.” Full Review
