The Happy Prince

Saturday 28th Sept 11am & 2pm

Tickets $10 plus booking, available at Town Hall Cinemas, over the counter or online. https://townhallcinemas.co.nz/live-shows

Doorsales available.

Hour long stage Musical production performed by Junior students from Hartley School of Performing Arts. Great School Holiday activity especially for preschool and primary children.

The Happy Prince’s tale takes us back in time to discover the story of Erik, the Happy but very shallow Prince whose disregard for anyone else, has left the people of his town to suffer in poverty. In comes the mischievous swallow who will change all of that! Having been foolish enough to fall in love with a river reed, Fidel the Swallow has missed the chance to migrate south for the winter, so he takes shelter in the shadow of the beautiful, gold leafed, jewel encrusted statue of the shallow prince. Their conversation leads Fidel to admit to the prince that his city is not all beauty and light, that in fact there are some sad and tragic stories to be seen in this cold winter, involving some selfish members of the town council and an evil workhouse owner. No longer a ‘Happy’ Prince, Erik sets Fidel the task of stripping him of his fine gold and jewels in order to take them to those in great need. Happily Erik’s gifts make a great difference to the town, restoring hope and prosperity, but in the process Fidel succumbs to the cold of the winter.

Thankfully the story does not end there, the now ugly prince Erik and the frozen Fidel are restored to life by the wish of a young girl, and everyone lives happily ever after.

The Happy Prince is brought to life with singing, dancing as well Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop & Contemporary dance. Performed by over 100 students aged 4-11yrs from the Junior Department of Hartley School of Performing Arts.
