Multimedia Performance: Theatre, film, 3D animation and live music
length: 90 minutes
This unabridged edition of the classic story about the prince from a tiny planet "hardly bigger than a house" integrates the original illustrations into pop-ups, wheels, and flaps. The text is gracefully balanced against the interactive elements as the Prince shares his story: flaps reveal images like the drawing of a sheep that the narrator makes for him, and delicate pop-ups feature characters he's met, like the clownlike lamp lighter. The pleasing visual effects are subtle, but add an appropriate sense of magic. Ages 9 12.
