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
Reviews & Ratings
Berkeley Ballet Theater (BBT) presents its Spring Showcase at the Julia Morgan Center for the Arts in Berkeley. The program will feature a new work by notable Bay Area choreographer KT Nelsen of ODC Dance and a work by Mark Bush, director and choreographer of Evansville Ballet. Also on the program will be a new work by Damara Ganley, formerly of ODC/Dance, and a staging of the historic ballet Les Sylphides, a non-narrative ballet based on music of Chopin that, when first introduced, was an innovative departure from traditional story ballets.
The second half of the program features Sur la Glace, choreographed by former Artistic Director Corinne Jonas and featuring BBT’s Children’s Division. Sur la Glace is a frolicking tale of all the mis-adventures and romance of the skating master and his pupils who have come to learn how to skate. Brandon Private Freeman, Brian Fisher, formerly of ODC/Dance, Robert Greer, BBT faculty member, and Alec Lytton will appear as guest artists.
