Sarah Crewe is a very intelligent, polite, and creative young girl. Born to a wealthy soldier in India, Sarah was brought all the way to London in Victorian-era England for a formal education and to escape the inevitable hardships of India such as disease. At the upscale boarding school, Sarah is forced to tolerate the haughty, disdainful headmistress, Miss Minchin. It only gets worse for poor Sarah Crewe when a distressing event unfolds to leave her impoverished and at the mercy of the jealous Miss Minchin. Sarah undergoes numerous trials as she humbly allows herself to be subjected to servitude, but with the help of several dear friends (both seen and unseen), she remains as proud and unwavering and imaginative as ever; proving to all that anyone can be A Little Princess.

The Emperors New Clothes Play

Time: Contact for more info.
Place: Nelson Elementary School, KMS Maple St., Keene, NH
Price: Contact for more info.
Ages: All

Set in the frontier town of Royal City, The Emperor’s New Clothes is a new musical telling of the popular tale by Hans Christian Anderson, joined with the spirit of the American West. While on a world tour the, clothes collecting, Emperor of Snobsylvania and his entourage stop for a visit in the railroad town of Royal City. The citizens of Royal City are star struck by the presence of real honest to goodness royalty and the Emperor is positively enchanted by the wardrobe of the American Cowboy. A pair of no good carpetbaggers takes advantage of everyone by posing as tailors to swindle the Emperor by selling him non-existent clothes. The town is giddy: caught up in the glamour of the royal visit and the antics of the swindlers. Ultimately everyone learns the lessons of standing up against peer pressure and using reason with good judgment to see the truth.
