The Middle School production of A Little Princess, the Musical, was a huge success! The show was performed in the G. Lloyd Bunting, Sr. Theatre at Oakcrest on November 11 and 12. Accolades heard at the Saturday matinee included: “The girls were phenomenal!” “Their voices were beautiful, and they also learned the harmonies. It was such a surprise!” “The sets were great… very detailed, and they added such a convincing atmosphere.” “I would rather be here today than the Kennedy Center. It was wonderful to see our middle schoolers put on such a moving performance!”
The show was so moving in fact, that several people in the audience mentioned that the songs brought tears to their eyes!

This engaging musical is an adaptation of the classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett and tells the story of Sara Crewe (played by 8th grader Audrey C.) who is transported from India by her father to attend boarding school at Miss Minchin’s seminary in Victorian London. Sara’s life takes a dramatic turn when she learns of the death of her father and loss of her fortune. She is forced by the greedy Miss Minchin (played by 8th grader Catie L.) to act as a servant and live in the attic with Becky, the scullery maid (played by 7th grader Anna D.). Fortunately, Sara never loses her optimistic spirit and learns the value of true friendship.
