freeFall Theatre – The Little Prince – Matinee @ freeFall Theatre
Nov 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar
based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

An aviator crashes his plane in the Sahara Desert. There he meets a little prince who has left his home on Asteroid B-612 and its only other inhabitant, his beloved rose. Along the way he discovers a parade of extraordinary individuals from a king to a businessman to a fox. Each peels back another layer of what it means to be alive, ultimately revealing the importance of personal connection and sacrifice in a wold that seeks to diminish that which connects us.

The most translated book in the French language, this allegory remains a beautiful example of personal struggle manifesting itself as transcendent art. Saint-Exupéry’s fantastical musing, inspired by the fall of France to fascist Germany, is at once delightfully imaginative and deeply philosophical.

Nov 25 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Artist-in-Residence Benjamin T. Ismail
Starring Producing Artistic Director Stephanie Gularte as Beatrice

The Original Rom-Com: Shakespeare-Style

“…spontaneous romantic combustion…” -The Washington Post

WE THE PEOPLE…ARE RIDICULOUS IN LOVE

The original Rom-Com couple, Beatrice and Benedick, face off in a hilarious battle of wits in this American Stage take on Shakespeare’s famous romantic comedy about the war between the sexes. As World War II is drawing to a close, one woman rails against the roles expected of women of her era while one man is just returning home from the war and in no hurry to be tied down. Who needs love? Full of live music and dance, and set against the backdrop of the Florida Keys’ bright sunshine, this exuberant, philosophical, and festive play reminds us that no one is immune when it comes to matters of the heart.
