A Little Princess

Written by Jamie Dunsdon, Adapted from the Novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Sara Crewe’s imagination has always been her greatest power.  Now, Sara’s ability to enchant the world around her with stories and mystery are put to the test when she is enrolled at Ms. Minchin’s Boarding School for girls.  How can Sara’s magic survive in a place so sad and dark?
