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.

Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling is the story of one young "duckling" who has never fit in.
He is so different from his brothers and sisters, he is ridiculed and goes off on his own to find his place in the world. After encountering kindness and peril, he finally discovers he is actually a handsome swan.
His heartwarming journey, from the awkwardness of childhood and adolescence to grace and maturity, is filled with music and song, and teaches all of us to "dare to be ourselves."
The California Theatre Center production of The Ugly Duckling has been acclaimed by sold-out audiences throughout the USA and as far away as Japan and Russia.
Recommended for grades K-5.
