Little Women

Open Date: 
19 Jan 2008

Based on Louis May Alcott’s beloved novel about family life and love, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy as they grow up during the Civil War. Father is off with the Union army, and money is tight, but the girls learn to be resourceful, knowing they can never truly be poor as long as they have each other. Each sister’s struggle leads to new adventures and revelations. Pretty Meg, the oldest, wonders if she will ever find love. Tomboy Jo struggles to balance her need for independence with her duty to her family. Shy Beth doesn’t realize how much her musical gifts mean to others and little Amy learns that she must think less about herself and more about her family. Their neighbors – wealthy Mr. Laurence and his high-spirited grandson, Laurie – admire the sisters’ kindness, talent and pluck, and step in to help when events take a turn for the worse.
