A Little Princess Reviews
Schoolhouse Arts Center - May, 2003
..‘Princess’ is a true delight.
Michael Hjort’s adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett story “A Little Princess” not only updates it to a World War II setting, but also improves it with much humor, complex plot twists, character depth and even some ethical lessons. How this all happens through the medium of musical theater is well worth seeing...

A Little Princess had its world premiere in January 2000 at City Theater In Biddeford, Maine. Here is what the reviewers had to say:
“The music is original, with very catch tunes.”,
“It is highly refreshing to see something new and fresh...”,
“...this team (Hjort & Curtis) shows a great deal of promise.”,
“This is a great show for both children and parents alike.”
