Mulat Theater’s Prinsipe Bahaghari, Vladimeir Gonzales’ Filipino puppet adaptation of “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, will be returning to the stage in January, this time at a different venue.

Directed by Aina Ramolete, the puppet play revolves around the journey of the Rainbow Prince in search of a companion to help care for his flower, the Gumamela, and keep her safe on his home planet. His encounters with a number of extraordinary characters ultimately lead to his realizations about the significance of his relationship with the flower.

This adaptation uses Filipino culture, myths, and language to make the play accessible especially to children. The puppets are made from rattan while local materials were also utilized in the production.

The artistic team includes Aina Ramolete (Direction & Production Design), Vladimeir Gonzales (Adaptation and Translation), Amihan Bonifacio-Ramolete (Assistant Direction), Steven Tansiongco (Video Design & Animation), Ohm David (Set Design), Arvy Dimaculangan (Music Composition & Sound Design), Jep Gabon (Music Composition), Gabo Tolentino (Lights Design), Darwin Desoacido (Costume Design), Clariz Caingat and Aina Ramolete (Puppet Design), Sig Pecho (Additional Shadow Design), and Nap Rivera (Puppet Creation).

The show previously ran last November at the Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio Teatro Papet Museo, Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. The January 2024 run will be staged on January 19, 20, 26, and 27, 2024 at 7:38 PM, and on January 21 and 28 at 3:38pm at the PowerMac Center Spotlight Blackbox Theater of Circuit Makati. The upcoming run is the beginning of the show’s theater tours in 2024. Details about the rest of the tour have yet to be announced.

Tickets are available through Ticket2Me.
