“A Little Princess,” a musical based on the Frances Hodgson Burnett novel, is the family holiday show at the Wilmington Drama League. The show, adapted by Andrew Lippa and Brian Crawley, demonstrates a girl’s resilience and the power of her imagination change the world. Separated from her father and the openhearted Africans who helped raise her, Sara is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly, her imagination transforms a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As she wins the affection of the other boarders, she draws the ire of Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress, who forces Sara to work as a maid when her father is reported dead and his fortune seized. Sara counters all of Miss Minchin’s efforts to degrade her, all the while maintaining the grace and virtue of a little princess.
