The Community Players of Naperville are pleased to announce our Fall production – A Little Princess – a musical by Andrew Lippa and Brian Crawley, based on the book of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The musical will be performed on November 15-17 and 22-23.
Show Summary: Separated from her father and the openhearted Africans who have helped raise her, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue – helping to transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As the girl wins the affection of the other boarders, she draws the ire of Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress, who forces Sara to work as a maid when her father is reported dead, and his fortune is seized. Sara counters all of Miss Minchin’s best efforts to degrade her, all the while maintaining the grace and virtue of a little princess.
