A Little Princess Music by Andrew Lippa, Book and Lyrics By Brian Crawley is inspired by the beloved childhood story by Francis Hodgson Burnett, with an updated script and a soaring score by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family). The story centers around young Sara Crewe, who is enrolled in a prestigious boarding school while her wealthy father goes off on a secret mission for the Queen of England. When Sara receives news of her father’s death, the school’s ruthless headmistress makes the newly penniless girl a servant and forces her to live in a cold attic. Sara, who refuses to accept that her father has died, proves that being a real princess takes heart, hope, and a little magic.
