A LITTLE PRINCESS
Music by Eric Rockwell
Lyrics by Margaret Rose
Book by William J. Brooke
A LITTLE PRINCESS was developed in the BMI/Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop.The first draft was selected for the Stages Festival of New Musicals in Chicago. Subsequently, it was selected by the Dramatists Guild for its annual New Musicals Workshop. In April of 2013, it received its World Premiere at the Sacramento Theater Company.
"Rockwell creates memorable songs for each character, building brilliant layers of tunes audiences can't help but walk away singing."
A LITTLE PRINCESS is the story of a girl on a ledge between happiness and loss, and a grown man teetering between youth and maturity. Together they help each other to bear what must be endured, and open their hearts to what can be dreamed.
Based on the beloved classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess is a full-length, large-cast family musical full of adventure, humor and heart.
“The music is gorgeous, the lyrics are smart, and the book is funny.”
"Rockwell’s score does much to propel A Little Princess into the eventual Broadway production territory."
