Sara Crewe is one of the most beloved fictional heroines, and June Walker Rogers has brought her to life in this funny, sad, wonderfully imaginative adaptation. Audiences will identify with Sara as she begins her adventures in "Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies"; laugh with her as she brings happiness to others; weep with her as her fortune changes from rich girl to poor orphan; and rejoice with her when strange events bring still another reversal of her destiny.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Many costume changes for SaraÑhave a dresser to help her in the wings."
- Tip by Linda Grames, Bennet Middle School, Manchester, Conn.
- "We built two platforms in the back of the stage, each 8 ft. by 12 ft., with a 4-ft. "hallway" between. This was the attic and Mr. Carrisford's study. Sarah's suite and the classroom were at stage level."
