Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. Little Womenfeatures plenty of great opportunities for female actors and singers ranging in age from teenage to 60 years old. The show also has a flexible cast size that can include as few as ten or as many as 42 people! The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
