President Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said: “as long as our country has Shirley Temple, we will be all right.” In collaboration with the Theater, Dance, and Media department, this look into the life of “America’s Little Princess” shares her incredible personal journey from Hollywood stardom to motherhood to international diplomacy. Featuring songs made popular by Shirley Temple, including “On the Good Ship Lollipop,” this show’s original take on a global sensation is an unforgettable story of ambition, fame, loss, and resilience.
