- About The Production -

Fall Main Stage Production Little Women The Musical
Rated PG
??
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s own family experiences (and novel), LITTLE WOMEN, follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. The beloved story of the March sisters is timeless and deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written. Now, this wonderful narrative has been brought to life as an exhilarating new musical filled with glorious music, dancing and heart. LITTLE WOMEN embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope — the sounds of a young America finding its voice. In years to come, we are sure that hundreds of productions by schools and theatres throughout the world will make this stage adaptation of the American classic novel a classic musical theatre treasure in its own right.

Character Breakdown:

Jo – A passionate young woman. This is her story and her journey. The story centers around her life, from the Christmas that it all started, to the writing of Little Women and her engagement to Professor Bhaer.
Laurie (Theodore Lawrence III) – The young boy-next-door that is the same age as Jo. He loves Jo dearly during Act One, but quickly is rejected when he proposes. He later travels to Europe and bonds with Amy, with whom he falls in love. He marries Amy.
Meg – The oldest sister. She yearns for a great life. She marries John Brooke and has twins later in Act II.
Amy – The youngest sister with a rather pompous manner, and by that, she rides into society. She marries Laurie.
Beth – The second youngest sister. Unfortunately, she dies of Scarlet Fever in Act II. She is a peace-maker, and always sees the good in everyone.
Marmee – The strong mother. She is the backbone of the family. Her songs show how truly trying this is, however.
Mr. John Brooke – Laurie’s Tutor, a rather stiff man, but capable of showing emotion. He marries Meg.
Mr. Laurence – Laurie’s grandfather. He is a stiff and stern elderly man, but he eventually shows his softer side.
Professor Bhaer – A German Professor, who is quite proper. He is a boarder in Mrs. Kirk’s boarding house. He then falls in love with Jo.
Aunt March – A formidable, over-bearing matron and the great-aunt of the March sisters. She is very rich and cares greatly about society, but in a stiff way, loves her family.
