Based on the enduring 1905 novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett (author of The Secret Garden), this musical adaptation of A Little Princess, presented by Berkeley Playhouse, centers around Sara Crewe, a generous and inventive young girl who is left at the mercy of a cruel headmistress after her father disappears searching for the mysterious city of Timbuktu. Though made to work as a servant in a boarding school, Sara finds within herself the heart of a princess in this song-filled adaptation, designed to delight adults and kids alike. The musical was written by Brian Crawley and Tony-nominated composer Andrew Lippa (Big Fish, The Addams Family, The Wild Party). Learn More

Fantastic! We drove 3 hours to this event and it was worth it! The variety of dancers from amateur children to local church groups to trained adult professionals was awesome. My critiques would be that they did not start on time (30+ minutes late) and no apology was made to the audience, the ticket pick-up was rather cumbersome, and the attire for the Ross Dance Company was inappropriate for a praise/worship dance. That said...I plan to be there in 2011.
There will also be a guest performance by Ross Dance, a musical performance by Covenant Worship Center's choir and a live music and dance collaboration with Erik Lee and K2. In addition, during the pre- and post-show, For His Glory, a company from Oregon that specializes in praise dance flags, streamers and other props will have items available for purchase.
