The Little Princess
Presented by the Carnegie Performing Arts Center
April 17-19

The Little Princess is the story by Frances Hodgson Burnett which chronicles the
adventures of young Sara Crewe, who goes from wealthy parlour boarder at an
exclusive girls’ school to a charity pupil forced to do the menial work of a servant.
In this classic children’s play, Sara Crewe triumphs over adversity by telling
herself that “all girls are Princesses”. A delightful fairy-tale ending makes this
riches-to-rags-to-riches tale one that will captivate romantics of all ages.

Tickets available at the door. Adults $15, students and seniors $12

Next to Normal
Presented by Stage 62
May 8-10 and 15-17
Thursday – Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm

This deeply moving piece of musical theatre explores how one suburban
household copes with crisis and mental illness. Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to
pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking
teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything
but normal, because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years.
NEXT TO NORMAL takes you into the minds and hearts of each character,
presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.
