Arlene said: “I am thrilled to be part of the biggest casting search for a child star since my worldwide search for the film of Annie. I am searching for 10 young stars for the UK premiere of A Little Princess the musical. This will be a huge and exciting casting search for the title role of Sara Crewe and friends who will lead this production. The book had deep meaning for me as a child but I realise it is more relevant than ever as it touches on themes of love, loss, bullying, friendship, poverty and hope.”
Open auditions are being held by the production team with Keston & Keston Children’s Casting in London on Sunday 25 March.
