This family-friendly musical based on the 1905 novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, features a score by Andrew Lippa (Addams Family and The Wild Party) and book and lyrics by Brian Crawley (Violet). This Victorian-era story follows Sara Crewe, the young daughter of adventurer Captain Crewe. A girl of privilege, Sara is sent to London to Miss Minchin's school for girls while her father sees to his interests abroad. When her father's fortunes turn, however, the cruel and corrupt Miss Minchin makes Sara a servant and she lives a life of hunger, despair and drudgery.
