This cherished children's tale follows young Sara Crewe, a well-to-do heiress sent to a London boarding school. Initially praised and pampered, Sara's fortunes take a turn for the worse when her father dies penniless, leaving her a destitute orphan. Sara endures starvation and mistreatment at the hands of her cruel headmistress, but is able to find respite through the power of her elaborate fantasies, as she creates a world where she'll forever remain a princess. Actress Rebecca Burns infuses Sara and her friends with playful, good-natured innocence, even as they endure misfortune and cruelty. With a performance sure to delight audiences young and old, Burns captures the magic and excitement of a child's imagination.
