A LITTLE PRINCESS - A Brand New Version of a Classic Tale Written by an Award-Winning Creative Duo, Now Available for Licensing!

Written by Tony-nominated composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa (THE ADDAMS FAMILYTHE WILD PARTY) and award-winning book-writer and lyricist Brian Crawley (VIOLET), A LITTLE PRINCESS is the story of a little girl with a great big imagination.

The show, which features an updated script, score, orchestrations, and new material, is based on Francis Hodgson Burnett's popular children’s novel that has been a fan favorite since the late 19th century.  The story has been made into several motion pictures, including the darling Shirley Temple Fox film in 1936.

Separated from her father, and the open-hearted Africans who have helped him 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; Sara is made a servant to the institution when her father is reported dead, and his fortune seized. Sara counters all Miss Minchin’s best efforts to degrade her with the grace and virtue of a little princess.

A new version of A LITTLE PRINCESS premiered with a concert staging at Texas State University October 16-19, 2011. The Texas State University production, conducted by Andrew Lippa provided the opportunity to finalize the script, score, orchestrations and new material. The final performance was live-streamed on the internet - here's a sample:
