A Little Princess (Beenleigh Theatre Group Inc)

  • Beenleigh Theatre Group Inc Crete Street, Beenleigh, Queensland 4207 Beenleigh, Queensland (map)



Based on the classic Victorian-era novel, a young girl's resilience and the power of her imagination changes the world. 

Written by Tony-nominated composer/lyricist, Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), and Brian Crawley (Violet), A Little Princess is based on the classic Victorian-era novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

This re-imagined version of the classic tale takes us on a journey from Victorian England to Africa, where the lively culture of exotic locations like Mali and Timbuktu adds to the flavor of the music and the dance and fuels a young girl’s imagination to help her face the trials of her ever changing situations. 

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 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. 

With a truly exhilarating and unique score, A Little Princess offers a world of imagination and magic with leading roles for both male and female performers, strong ensemble singing, cameo roles and dance chorus.
