the little prince webSouth Texas College Theatre and Dance announces its spring production, “The Little Prince,” adapted by Rick Cummins and John Scoular from Antoine De Saint-Exupéry’s novel.

The production will run on February 22 and 24 at 7:30 p.m. and will include two matinees at 2 p.m. on February 24 and 25. The Thursday, February 22 evening performance will be interpreted in American Sign Language (ASL). Tickets sales for the February 22 performance will go towards the Dr. John F. Carroll Drama Scholarship. Through a generous donation from Carroll’s family, the Drama Department established a memorial scholarship in his name. The scholarship will award two Drama Majors for their merit in theatre. Each student can receive a scholarship up to $1,000 which is divided between fall and spring semesters.

Performances will take place at STC’s Cooper Center for the Performing Arts Black Box Studio at 3200 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.

“The Little Prince” is about a lonely, little prince who journeys through the universe in search of enlightenment and finds the strange, narrow-minded world of grownups.

General admission tickets cost $5. Tickets can be purchased online at www.southtexascollege.edu/go/theatre.
