Tickets on sale for St. Paul’s ‘A Little Princess’

St. Paul Catholic is home to the nationally recognized St. Paul Performing Arts Program, winner of the 2013 “Best High School Musical” in Connecticut. The St. Paul Performing Arts troupe is mounting a production of the Andrew Lippa musical, “A Little Princess,” based on the classic children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
It’s the story of a little girl with a great big imagination. 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.”
