Presented as our Holiday MainStage show, featuring a cast of professional adults and auditioned youth & teens.  A Little Princess is based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which was honored by School Library Journal as one of the “Top 100 Chapter Books” of all time.  The music for this adaptation

was written by Tony-nominated Andrew Lippa. Separated from her father and the open-hearted residents of Saint Louis in West Africa, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue – helpingto transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As the girl wins the affection of the other students, she draws the ire of Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress, who forces Sara to work as a maid when her father is reported dead and his fortune seized. Sara counters all Miss Minchin’s best efforts to degrade her, all the while maintaining the grace and virtue of a little princess. This fresh, imaginative, joyful production will feature a drum ensemble and beautiful West African-inspired movement.
