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

Among the Christians, hope runs high, based entirely on Rinaldo, a young soldier of spectacular prowess, whose ferocity on the field is legendary...
Though permeated through and through with magic — transformations, disappearances, cataclysms, and much more — the opera's real magic lies in the music, where Handel once again is at his supreme, sublime, awe-inspiring best.
