Little Women

Adapted by Thomas Hischak, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott

Directed by Susan Nanning-Sorenson

Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women is an epic story that is familiar to nearly every American. Set during the Civil War, the plot revolves around the lives of the four March daughters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—and follows their triumphs and tragedies as they grow up, fall in love and face life. Thomas Hischak’s time-honored script is a heart-warming adaptation of Alcott’s classic that captures the richness and depth of her lovely characters and story. Audiences of all generations will enjoy this much-loved classic tale, interlaced with warmth, family loyalty and love.

This is the first time in years that the theatre program will be doing a period piece with period appropriate costumes. Our reciprocal agreement with many local theatre companies, spearheaded by our brilliant costume designer Mary Waldhart, and with Chris Dunham’s set design, this is ensured to be a stunning production. We are also planning on working with the gallery to display some period costumes (with art of the era from the gallery collection) as well. Tickets will go sale January 26.
