Musical version of Little Women is a touching story for the whole family
It is this time of the year again when Harrison School for the Arts Musical Theatre Department proudly presents the musical Little Women based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel with book by Allan Knee, music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein.
This musical version of the famous story focuses on the lives of the four sisters Jo, who is tomboyish, romantic Meg, kind-hearted Beth and the pretentious Amy March as they grow up during the mid-19th century in Massachusetts. At the center of the story is the lively character of Jo, an imaginative creative writer, who challenges social conventions and maintains her independent spirit while desperately trying to keep the ties of her family from unraveling.
Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing an evening filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope for all family members.
Performances of Little Women will take place at the Harrison Theatre Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3rd at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 4th at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $7 for students and senior citizens and $9 for adults. Tickets may be purchased on line by going to www.harrisonarts.com and clicking tickets.
