Based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess is the story of the power of a young girl's imagination to change the world around her.
Written by Tony-nominated composer/lyricist, Andrew Lippa and Brian Crawley, A Little Princess is a family-friendly musical and an East Anglian premiere by Echo Youth Theatre. In this version of the tale, the story expands beyond the confines of Victorian England to Africa and includes lively African music and dance within its truly exhilarating and unique score.
Separated from her father in Africa, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her, her imagination and story-telling help to transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As Sara wins the affection of the other boarders, she crosses Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress, who forces Sara to work as a maid, when her father is reported dead. Sara counters all of Miss Minchin's best efforts to degrade her, while maintaining the grace and virtue of a little princess.
A Little Princess is the perfect show for all ages and guaranteed to bring a smile.
