ICON-TICKETS-185px-newWritten by Tony-nominated composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party) and Brian Crawley (Violet), 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.  Separated from her father and the open-hearted Africans who have helped him raise her, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue – helping to 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 production will feature drumming and shadow play.

Directed by Jerry R. Foust | Music Direction by Jordan Richardson | Choreography by Noelle Daniels
