On 11 March, a stage adaptation of The Little Prince, O Pequeno Príncipe, was performed for the first time in São Paulo, Brazil. The highly original adaptation, which relies on extensive technical resources, was directed by João Falcão. The part of The Little Prince was played by Luana Piovani, who had already scored a big success in 2003 for her part in the adaptation of another well-known children\’s tale. The performances also have a charitable role to play by collecting food in exchange for theatre seats. The food collected is then distributed to children\’s charities, hospitals and kindergartens.
O Pequeno Príncipe, from 11 March to 29 October 2006, every Saturday and Sunday at 4 .00 p.m.
at Teatro Shopping Frei Caneca
Rua Frei Caneca, 569
Shopping Frei, 6° andar
