Misfits Theatre and ARTS/West Present: A Little Princess: A New Musical
Misfits Theatre (formally Scene One) presents A Little Princess: A New Musical! Book by Bryan Crawley and Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Based on the timeless, classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Performances will be August 19th-21st and 26th-28th at ARTS/West in Athens (132 West State St). Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Synopsis: Separated from her father, and the openhearted 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, who forces Sara to work as a maid. Sara counters all of Miss Minchin's best efforts to degrade her, all the while maintaining the grace and virtue of a little princess. For more info contact: matt@misfitsdrama.
