A Little Princess

Rated 4.0

Set in London circa 1905, this musical features a Scrooge-like boarding-school headmistress (the icy Deborah Tranelli); a Cockney-ish beggar (David McDaniel); a stout constable (Jeffrey Lloyd Heatherly), with funny deadpan lines; and a maid named Mariette. But primarily, this is a father-daughter tale of riches to rags to riches again, involving perky Sara Crewe (Lauren Metzinger and Alyssa Middleton) and Captain Crewe (Jerry Lee, as living dad and paternal ghost). W, Th 12:30 & 6:30pm; F 8pm; Sa 2 & 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 5/19. $15-$38. Sacramento Theatre Company, 1419 H St.; (916) 443-6722; www.sactheatre.org.
