The March sisters. For many women, these young ladies, from Louisa May Alcott’s beloved book, Little Women, are cherished friends from childhood.

The feisty, independent tomboy, Jo. The elegant, loyal Meg. The fragile, artistic Beth. The lovely brat, Amy. Directed by Katy Brown, and adapted for the stage by Marisha Chamberlain, the story is that of a New England family of females, headed by a mother while their father is fighting in the Union army of Civil War America. The play begins at Christmastime, where the poverty and needs of the family are underscored by the memories of better holidays, with presents, plentiful food, and their kindly father. The girls present a play to liven up the gloom, meet their elusive wealthy neighbors, and share their meager provisions with an even more disadvantaged family. Time passes, the girls grow up (somewhat reluctantly in Jo’s case), romance creates chaos, hardships continue and illness comes, but love and family buttress the March family in this heart-warming production.
