A Little Princess

A Little Princess

Sara Crewe is a princess by all rights. Wealthy, smart, kind, and beautiful--she has everything. But as she learns, it is not the things you have that make you a princess but what you are made of...

When her father drops her at boarding school, she learns to get along without him. She befriends the girl who is bullied, the dumpy sister of the headmistress, the youngest cry baby in the school, and even the scullery maid and wows everyone with her stories and her charm. But what happens when her Papa is gone forever? Thrown into the attic, and her fortunes lost, Sara discovers just what being a princess truly means.  Will her fortunes be reversed? It might just need a Christmas miracle.

Rebel Theatre Company presents a play that tugs on our heartstrings. Based on the original novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this stunning production will show us all what a little kindness can do. A new adaptation of a traditional story for a modern world, this production makes more of Sara's origin in India. Children and adults alike will love this classic show.

Theatre Company Reviews:


A thought-provoking tale of riches-to-rags-to-riches again, the importance of friendship, compassion, and inclusion against oppression, and the power of imagination. -Within Her Words.


Christmas is about sentimental moments and this piece has plenty. It is a charming, magical tale. If you are looking for less pantomime and more Christmas magic, then THE LITTLE PRINCESS might be just the production this year. -London Pub Theatres


The show has the earnestness of a child looking forward to Christmas, and this retelling of a familiar story was a pleasure to witness - London Theatre 1


This year more and more venues are eschewing panto for more imaginative Christmas shows and the Drayton Arms have chosen well with this endearing production of A Little Princess...a much-loved story of decency and goodness. -Reviews Hub

Having left numerous productions because the kids were so bored...I can report that this charming presentation of A Little Princess at the Drayton Arms triggered very little unrest in the stalls. - My Theatre Mates
