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

The company did a great job bringing this production to the Julia Morgan, It travels to other stages later in the spring of 2010. Marcus Silva is an adoring Charley Brown, with great body language and hit the kid on the spot.. Reggie White steals the show as soon as his Snoop dog ears hit the stage. He is adorable as the lovable dog and his dance and swagger win the audience over. Other high lights include Jeffy Ramos as the boy with the Piano and Blanket.
The setting is designed for a younger audience so this production is perfect for the family day to the theatre ,, look for it around the east bay spring of 2010.. V
