Character Description:

Aviator:
Male, 30-50
An explorer and the narrator of the story. He is a human being disillusioned by the adult world, who after crashing in the desert finds himself on a spiritual quest.  Lonely and secret, he discovers that he yearns to go back to the childhood pleasures that he gave up to do more “important” grown-up things.

Audition Side ]

The Little Prince:
Male or Female, 18-25
Will be played as a boy by a male or female actor. Imaginative, curious, playful, and sincere, androgynous. Seeking to find answers to the many questions he has, he decides to travel around the galaxy – where he encounters different and strange characters – to find a friend that will help him with his quest. He misses the Rose that he left behind on a planet far away and longs to return home. Must embody childhood innocence.

Audition Side ]

Rose / Snake / Ensemble:
Female, 18-25
Rose is a coy and flirtatious flower who has trouble expressing her love to The Little Prince and resorts to telling dramatic lies to get his attention. Off-beat and naive, with flexibility and charm. The snake is very seductive and self-aware of her great power.  A constant enigma evoking the serpent from the Bible, she is a personification of death and ultimately sends the prince back to the heavens by biting him. Also plays a diverse range of other playful characters within the Aviator’s and The Little Prince’s imaginations.

Audition Side 1 or Audition Side 2 ]

Fox / Men on Planets / Ensemble:
Male or Female, 18-45
Fox is skittish about human hunters, yet wise to the fact that they raise chickens. The paradoxes of the universe bewilder and fascinate him, as he is stuck in the perpetual cycle of: search (for a chicken), run, hide. He is the voice of reason for The Little Prince. From him, he learns that “the essential is invisible to the eyes”. Also plays a range of other playful characters within the Aviator’s and The Little Prince’s imaginations.
