Quick As A Wink Theatre recently hosted several performances of A Little Princess, the Musical.
The show, based on the children’s book by Frances Hodgeson Burnett, revolves around the life of Sara Crewe, and her experiences living in Europe at Miss Minchin’s Seminary for Girls while her father was fighting in the Second Boer War in South Africa.
The show starred King’s-Edgehill School student Elsa Hodder as Sara. The cast included Lorraine Lazier (as Miss Minchin), Jim Horne (Captain Ralph Crewe), Mark Collingwood (Mr. Barrow, the solicitor), Micaela Comeau (Lavinia Herbert), Lydia Houck (Ermengarde St. John), Chloe Symons (Lottie Leigh), Rachel Bobbitt (Becky), Nikki Lannan (Amelia Minchin), Meggie McKay (cook), Kallie Roberts (Jessie), Sara Sypher (Alice), Sylvie LeBlanc (Mary), Bronwyn Farcey (Beatrice), Nicole Langdon (Nellie), Kaleigh Lerette (Anne), Lianne Thibodeau (Ruth), Taylor Yeomans (Elizabeth), Tori Yeomans (Eleanor), Rachel MacDonald (Frances), Olivia Lee (Theodora), Rebecca Moore (Clara), Mollie Symons (Diana), Dennis Herx (Mr. Carrisford), Deborah Baker (Mrs. Carrisford), Mike Butler (Ram Dass) and Lisa LeBrasseur (Perkins.)
The directors were Junie Hutchinson and Toven MacLean.
The show ran nightly Dec. 8-10, with a matinee performance on Dec. 10. Youths were encouraged to arrive at the matinee in their finest prince and princess attire.
Special guests included Queen Annapolisa (Princess Hantsport) Kelsey Carey, her child attendant Mya Walsh and Princess Windsor 2011 Danielle Weir.
The next Quick As A Wink production is scheduled for March 16-18 and March 23-24. It will be a winter comedy, the title of which has yet to be made public.
