The Little Prince

The Little Prince has only ever known his little planet, Asteroid 325. A planet so small that it is possible to witness the sunset fourty-four times in one day and a single rose can believe it is the only one of its kind in the universe. In Monster Theatre’s adaptation, award-winning director/playwright Ryan Gladstone brings Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s cherished novella to life on the stage in surprising, and at times, hilarious ways. Venture out on interplanetary travel. Learn about true love and loyalty. Join The Little Prince on a spectacular adventure as he celebrates open-mindedness, open-heartedness and the beauty of imagination. With puppets, masks, original music and a little theatre magic, the storytelling experts of Monster Theatre capture the hearts and funny bones of audiences of all ages.

Afro-Brazilian Carnaval

Grupo Axé Capoeira promotes the history, music, art, and culture of Brazil in interactive and educational demonstrations. Featuring traditional capoeira music as well as upbeat Brazilian vocals and instrumentals, their performances showcase captivating professional capoeiristas and dancers at the height of their skill. The “Afro” style of dance originated among the slaves in colonial Brazil. Its vitality comes from the mixture of steps and rhythms comprising a combination of African, Indigenous, and European influences.
