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

</p> Sure enough, Pippi does fine on her own, beating the strong man at the carnival, foiling the plot of two robbers, and avoiding the local police who want to take her to the children’s home.
