Perk Players to present “A Little Princess”

The Perkinston Campus Fine Arts Department will present “A Little Princess” March 1-4 in Malone Hall Auditorium at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Perkinston Campus.  Performances will begin at 7 p.m. on March 1-3 with a matinee at 2 p.m. on March 4.

The play is based on a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  Music and lyrics are by Marc Folan, and the book is by Adam Boden.  This engaging musical adaptation opens with a happy Sara Crewe, heiress to a large fortune.  Enrolled at Miss Minchin’s seminary in Victorian England, her life takes a dramatic turn when she receives news of the loss of her father and his fortune.  Sara is forced by the mean-spirited Minchin to become a servant and live in a wretched attic room.  When a mysterious gentleman from India moves next door, curious things begin to happen.  Sara even discovers that her fortune has been retrieved.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and children.  For reservations, contact 601.928.6369.
