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.

Reviews & Ratings
Not recommended for children under 8, unless they know the story and are very brave.
American Minister of the House of St. James, Hiram Otis, and his family have recently moved to Canterville Chase, a grand estate just outside of London, even though the previous owners made it quite clear to the family that the home was haunted. While the Otises are a practical lot and don’t believe in anything of a supernatural sort, a reappearing blood stain and the perpetual nocturnal visits of a rather noisy ghost with a taste for the theatrical convince them otherwise. Clearly the ghost is going to be driven mad by the very people he is desperately trying to haunt!
