Stage Talk: A Little Princess

Sara Crewe, heiress to a large fortune, is enrolled at Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies in Victorian England. At first her life is happy, but news arrives that her father has died and her fortune is lost. Sara is forced to become a servant, scrubbing cobblestones and washing cooking kettles. But, soon enough, things start to change for the better. This show is filled with comedy, drama and, most of all, charm.  Hosts Mark Muro and Jean Paal talk with director Jackie Johnson and actress Sierra Bydlon about this production by Valley Performing Arts.
