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
- "A marvelous piece of theatre as well as a great treatise on the nature of mankind which should take its place as a classic of dramatic literature." <em>Drama-Logue</em>
- "A work of passion and power." <em>Time Magazine</em>
Set in a "pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva," A Walk in the Woods by Lee Blessing begins as a Russian diplomat and his American counterpart meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table.
As the seasons change and their talks continue, we begin to see an understanding develop between these two very different men--one seasoned, cynical and urbane, the other fervently idealistic about what can be achieved through perseverance and honest bargaining.
Drama-Logue calls it "a marvelous piece of theatre as well as a great treatise on the nature of mankind which should take its place as a classic of dramatic literature." This long-running Broadway success, which Time Magazine called "a work of passion and power," is intelligent, gripping and unexpectedly humorous.
