Join us for our staged reading holiday fundraiser of Louisa May Alcott’s classic, Little Women!
Following the lives of four sisters Amy, Jo, Beth and Meg in the post-Civil War era, the coming of age story shows the timelessness of their bonds in changing times.
A dramatization in one set of Louisa M. Alcott’s novel, Little Women, a story that never will grow old for its treatment of a mother’s love for her children and their appreciation. Who can forget tom boy Jo and her sacrificing her glorious hair to help finance her mother’s trip to Washington, when the telegram arrived saying her father was dying? Of her writing “The Christmas Play,” rehearsing Amy in the fainting scene and then the playing of the drama on the fateful night when everything went wrong. Her beautiful scenes with Little Beth when they both knew the Angel of Death was hovering near? Of her going to New York, meeting Professor Bhaer in Mrs. Kirk’s rooming house, their comedy courtship and ultimate marriage?
Recently also released as a film with Meryl Streep and Emma Watson, get your tickets today for Bellissima’s live stage reading production!
