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
In a future where both theatre and zombies are exiled fro Earth, Planet "Z" has become a home not only for the flesh-eating zombies but for all the old cast off musical sets. A spaceship crashes on Planet “Z," and when a space-teen and zombie fall in love, the interplanetary implications can only be imagined – or beautifully told with '80s rock!
Don’t miss this zany, highly original, sci-fi rock musical written and directed by Jon Tracy. Featuring all your favorite hits from the '80s including Michael Jackson, Iggy Pop, Madonna and Pat Benatar, Planet “Z” is where The Forbidden Planet meets Rocky Horror Picture Show to discuss Twilight – we're just saying – you’ve never seen anything like this musical before!
Written and Directed by Jon Tracy
Music Direction by Phil Gorman
Choreography by Kimberly Dooley
