Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's infamous children's tale The Little Prince meets the puppets (pictured), live actors and musicians of Pennsylvania's Bristol Riverside Theatre, as they swing through Storrs on March 3. The puppets were designed by Emmy recipient Michael Schupbach and Monkey Boys Productions, the designers behind the recent Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors. (If they can handle a giant, talking plant, diminuative royal family members, sheep and pilots are, well, child's play.) One show only.
