The Story:  The time honored classic, Little Women, written by Louisa May Alcott, is masterfully brought to life in this incredibly written musical.  This musical will touch the hearts of those who read and loved the novel, and those who have never read it.  With beautiful music, lovable characters, and even an operatic tragedy, audiences are sure to leave with a song in their hearts and with smiles on their faces. 

 

Enter Jo March, a spunky girl who writes sensational "blood and guts" stories, chops down trees, and doesn't care for riches and fine dresses - but she does deeply care for her beloved sisters.  Meg, the oldest March sister, longs for romance and hopes for an invitation to the St. Valentine's Day ball.  Amy, the youngest, wants to do grown up things and desires the finer things in life, but most of all wants to have a wonderful Christmas despite the fact that money is tight and their father is away at war. Sweet Beth March,  does her best to cheer everyone up - and she is especially excited that Jo has written an operatic tragedy for the family to perform at Christmas.  Meanwhile, Marmee does her best to keep the March girls safe, together, and happy while shaping their characters and desperately waiting for letters from her dear husband. Gathered up in the family attic, the March sisters bare their hearts to one another, but also spend grand times playing and acting out Jo's fantastic stories.

 

This show is truly heartwarming! And with wonderful, handmade costumes, beautiful vintage furniture, carefully crafted scenery, and a live orchestra - the show will come alive in a unique and special way.  We sincerely hope it will be "Astonishing"!
