Australian audiences are invited to embark on a cosmic adventure in Sydney, as the fantastic world of ‘The Little Prince’ lands at Sydney’s Coliseum Theatre.

As the first major international touring cast to come to Australia since the industry was shut down by the global pandemic, this spectacular and extraordinary adaptation of the classic French novella, ‘The Little Prince’ immerses audiences in a unique and innovative stage production that captures the heart and challenges the imagination.
