A Little Princess, composed by Andrew Lippa and based on the beloved children’s book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is the story of a little girl with a great big imagination in the Victorian Era. Separated from her father, and her home in 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 – 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; Sara is made a servant to the institution when her father is reported dead and his fortune seized. Sara counters all Miss Minchin’s best efforts to degrade her with the grace and virtue of a little princess.

A Little Princess will be performed by two different casts and is presented in concert.
