About this show

Treated like a little princess by her adventurer father, young Sara Crewe's life takes a traumatic turn when he loses his fortune and she is put to work in her new boarding school. However, Sara never loses her grace or virtue, and her imaginative powers help to win the affections of the other students in her boarding school, transforming a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery.

Written by Tony-nominated composer Andrew Lippa and award-winning book-writer and lyricist Brian Crawley, A Little Princess is based on the classic novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett, author of the The Secret Garden. The score is a lush and upbeat mix of traditional Broadway and African rhythm, with songs like "Bonne Chance," "Let Your Heart Be Your Compass," and "Live Out Loud." Don't miss this instant family classic!

"We need this kind of family musical to bring parents and children to live theatre." – Richard Connema of Talkin' Broadway.
