Based on the beloved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this brand new adaptation comes straight from London with Lyrics & Music by Marc Folan, and Book by Adam Boden. Directed by Laura Luc, the production stars Mavis Simpson-Ernst (Broadway's Evita) and Joy Kate Lawson as Sara Crewe.
Sara Crewe is a very intelligent, polite, and creative young girl. Born to a wealthy soldier in India, Sara was brought all the way to London in Victorian-era, England for a formal education and to escape the inevitable hardships of India, such as disease. At the upscale boarding school, Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies, Sara is quickly idolized by the girls and made the star pupil. When news arrives that her Papa has died of Jungle Fever in India, Sara is left impoverished at the mercy of the haughty, disdainful headmistress, Miss Minchin. Sara undergoes numerous trials as she humbly allows herself to be subjected to servitude. Sara uses her imagination and her perseverance to survive, with the grace of a real-life princess. Sara remains as proud, unwavering and imaginative as ever, proving to all that if you are kind, brave and true, anyone can be a princess.
