“Little Women” the Broadway Musical on September 29-30,

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s American classic, this Civil War story of love and family stands the test of time.
The play will take place at: Oxford City Hall Auditorium GLT
Produced nationally and internationally, Little Women has been praised by critics for its
ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless, captivating story is
brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and
everlasting love. The original production starred the unparalleled Sutton Foster, who received
Tony, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk nominations for her performance.
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.
Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with
laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. Little Womenfeatures plenty of great opportunities
for female actors and singers ranging in age from teenage to 60 years old. The show also has
a flexible cast size that can include as few as ten or as many as 42 people! The powerful score
soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
