Riverview Senior High School will present The Little Princess. This is a student run production that will be performed on Thursday and Friday, March 3, and 4 at 7 p.m. at Riverview High School, located at 11311 Boyette Rd. in the auditorium. The play is open to all ages.

The Little Princess is based off of the story written by Frances H. Burnett, which was later adapted into a play by Cynthia Mercati.

A brief overview of The Little Princess: When her father enlists to fight for the British in World War I, young Sara Crewe goes to New York to attend the same boarding school that her late mother attended. She soon clashes with the severe headmistress, Miss Minchin, who attempts to stifle Sara’s creativity and sense of self-worth. Within this story, Sara’s belief that “every girl is a princess” is tested to the limit. Due to a change in her circumstances, Sara Crew finds herself as a servant rather than a student.

This story is inspiring to young children due to Sara’s creativity and positivity. The directors of this production, Lucelle Humphreys and Alivia Hernandez noted that, “It’s an enchanting story of a little girl. Everyone should come watch it.”

Friends and family are welcome to come and support the Riverview Senior High School Theatre department.

“It shows students just how much work it takes to pull together every detail of a production. It’s going to be a fun and eye opening experience for the students,” said Casey Vaughn, who is head of the Theatre Department.

The cost is $5 at the door.  For more information, email Casey Vaughan at casey.vaughan@sdhc.k12.fl.us.
