The Happy Prince, & Other Wilde Tales

World Premiere
May 4-6 & 11-12, 2018
Peter Martin Wege Theatre

Often provocative, always ironic, never boring, Oscar Wilde was one of the world’s most colorful and popular playwright-poets of the late 19th century. But did you know he also wrote beloved children’s stories like The Selfish Giant, The Happy Prince, and The Nightingale & The Rose? Our choreographer-in-residence and Princess Grace award-winner, Penny Saunders, will wistfully weave together these tales into a family-friendly ballet to remind us all what it’s like to see the world through the innocence of a child’s eyes.
