Based on the enduring 1905 novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett (author of The Secret Garden), this musical adaptation of A Little Princess centers around Sara Crewe, a precocious young girl who's left at the mercy of a cruel headmistress after her father mysteriously disappears while searching for 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), and is presented by the Sunnyvale Community Players in a junior production comprised entirely of talented young performers between the ages of eight and 18.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Filled with laughter and warmth and sweetness and inspired daffiness.” --New York Daily News
A coming-of-middle-age story revolving around eccentric bachelor Murray Burns, an unemployed children’s television writer who has found himself raising his sister’s son after she went out for a pack of cigarettes and never returned. When social workers from the Bureau of Child Welfare come to investigate whether his nephew is receiving a proper upbringing, finding an actual paying job becomes high priority so Murray can keep the precocious 12-year-old. A return to his former work involves writing for “Chuckles the Chipmunk,” an inane character if ever there was one! Full of quotable dialogue and quirky charm, A Thousand Clowns speaks to us of commitment and the power of love.
