Synopsis & Character Overview

This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.  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.  This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discover, heartache and hope - the sounds of a young America finding its voice.

Marmee is the backbone of the March family and manages to remain strong in spite of the difficulties she faces. Only reveals her true fears and pain when she sings.
