This adaptation is a sparkling version of the Burnett classic. It retains its Victorian charm and is enhanced by humor, song and suspense.
To Sara Crewe, everyone at Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies is a story: cold Miss Minchin; her timid sister, Miss Amelia; pupils such as spiteful Lavinia or plodding Ermengarde; as well as the invalid gentleman next door and his lascar. Imagination sustains Sara when, orphaned and no longer parlor boarder, she is banished to the attic. Becky, the little scullery maid, becomes her fast friend.
Suddenly, Sara's bleak garret is mysteriously transformed by a secret benefactor. When Sara finally learns who has cared for her, Miss Minchin gets her just reward. Sara's final song tells it all, "This Is Just the Way It Ends in Books!"
