Join us for this adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy-tale The Happy Prince ! Under the careful direction of Skeleton Key’s award-winning Kate Smith, comes this magical radio play presented for a live audience. Come and experience the drama and fun of a radio show in this one-time only performance on Sunday, November 20 at 4:00pm.
A young swallow meets the Happy Prince, a gilded statue that has never experienced sorrow. After viewing people suffering in poverty, the Happy Prince asks the swallow to take his jewels, all of his adornments, and give them to the poor. The moral of the story is that true happiness comes from leading a good and compassionate life, even if it means making material sacrifices. Wilde’s stories give young people and adults a renewed sense of the good in humanity.
