The Little Prince
The Little Prince, based on the novella Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, 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, along with their adventures through the galaxy, inclusively illustrating that “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly…what is essential is invisible to the eye.” The audience as with our heroes, will go home with a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, love and accept all that life may have in store for us. Appropriate for kids and grown-ups of all ages.
Featuring: William Ketter, Anton Spivack, Imani Youngblood, Samantha Elisofon, Miles Butler, Gideon Pianko, Nick Moscato, Kim Carter, Ben Hill, Gianluca Cirafici, Talia Eapen and Jesus Chavez
This is a neuro-inclusive production, which means actors with and without cognitive differences, such as autism spectrum disorder, will be sharing the stage to tell this epic story.

The EPIC Players (Empower, Perform, Include, Create) is a nonprofit, neuro-inclusive theatre company that provides access, opportunity and community to artists living with autism and developmental disabilities. We seek to increase social and workplace opportunities in the arts for our members and to break down negative stereotypes surrounding neuro-diverse communities. EPIC provides its community of neuro-diverse artists with over one hundred non-traditional classes per year in performing arts skills, professional development, and social community building. We also produce up to ten challenging, neuro-inclusive, and paid performances per year, reaching audiences of over four hundred people with each production. Some recent accomplishments include: speaking on the vitality and power of autism in the arts at The United Nations in honor of World Autism Day, ringing the opening bell at The New York Stock Exchange in celebration of Autism Awareness Month and receiving a New York Innovative Theater Award Nomination for lead actor in a performance for it’s neuro-inclusive production of “Dog Sees God”. www.epicplayersnyc.org
