Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts’ “BROADWAY IN CONCERT” presents
A Little Princess
|ABOUT BROADWAY IN CONCERT
During CHSMA’s Broadway in Concert, students age 13-19 learn and perform the music from a musical with limited staging. This will include minimal lines and will not include sets or costumes. As a result, there are far fewer rehearsals, making this class a unique opportunity for busy students to prepare and perform a full role that they can put on their resume, without the enormous time commitment of a fully staged production. In the process, students grow enormously as singers and performers and create friendships with other students who share their interests.
There will be five rehearsals, one dress rehearsal and a total of four performances. The show will be double cast, meaning roles will be given to two people, each of whom get to perform the entire role twice. We will perform the show two times each night, once with one cast, and once with the other. There will be four performances in total.
The rehearsals will be directed by Meris Robinson and will feature Chuck Higgins as an adjunct teacher and conductor.

|ABOUT A LITTLE PRINCESS
Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts (CHSMA) is proud to announce A Little Princess as our Fall Broadway in Concert (BIC) show. A Little Princess 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. 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.
The ages, genders, and races listed below represent the ages, genders, and races for the character in the original musical. As a school that supports equal opportunity, we will cast the student who best fits a role, even if that student is a different gender, race, or age than the original character.

Q. I have some conflicts during the rehearsal schedule. Can I still participate?
A. Please list these out fully on your audition sheet. We can only accommodate a small number of conflicts. Identifying conflicts will not remove you from consideration for a role; it will just indicate the need for discussion before casting. Unplanned absences must be limited to illness or emergency.
Call time – 4:00
