Families from Weston, Redding, and Easton can attend the premiere concert production of “A Little Princess” which will begin the Family Classics Series at The Bijou in Bridgeport. Opening night is Friday, November 16 at 8 PM and will continue on Saturday November 17th at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday November 18th at 7 PM. “A Little Princess,” with an “unbelievably gorgeous, soaring score” by Tony- nominated composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family, Wild Party) and book and lyrics By Brian Crawley, is inspired by the beloved childhood classic by Francis Hodgson Burnett, with an updated script. This story centers around young Sara Crewe, who is enrolled in a prestigious boarding school while her wealthy father goes off on a secret mission for the Queen of England. When Sara receives news of her father’s death, the school’s ruthless headmistress makes the newly penniless girl a servant and forces her to live in a cold attic. Sara, who refuses to accept that her father has died, proves that being a real princess takes heart, hope, and a little magic. This production is directed for the Bijou by Tobi Beth Silver with musical direction by Tom Cuffari. The film version will follow one week later on Friday Nov. 23 with 3 showings at 11 AM, 2 PM and 5 PM.  The Saturday showing on Nov. 24 is at 11 AM. Tickets for the live concert are $20 and $25 and tickets for the film are $8/$9/$10.  All tickets can be purchased by calling 203-332-3228 or visiting The Bijou website at http://thebijoutheatre.com.
