The Peasant Prince at Lendlease Darling Quarter Theatre

1 - 25 Harbour Street, Sydney , Lendlease Darling Quarter TheatreSydney NSW 2000

Following a mammoth Australian tour, the critically-acclaimed smash-hit children’s show The Peasant Prince returns to the Lendlease Darling Quarter Theatre for one show only on Saturday 10 September.

Presented by Monkey Baa Theatre Company, The Peasant Prince is based on the incredible personal story of Li Cunxin, and his autobiography Mao’s Last Dancer and its adaptation as a children’s book, The Peasant Prince.

Aimed at ages six and over, the play begins as a young Li Cunxin is taken from his small rural village in northern China to study at an elite dance academy in Beijing. Although the training is grueling, he is inspired by dreams of a better life for both him and his family. When a famous ballet master from the USA visits the academy, his life is changed forever.

Exploring themes of belonging, motivation, loneliness and hope, The Peasant Prince will inspire young people to overcome fears and follow their dreams.
