The Women’s Theatre Festival will host Lorelei Canne’s play adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, "Little Women," from Nov. 24 to Dec. 3 at the Sonorous Road Theatre and Film Studio.
"Little Women" takes place during the Civil War and chronicles the story of four sisters as they advance through childhood and into maturity while their father is off at war. As poor women living alone in the 1800s, they face many challenges in their lives, but always meet them with strength and resilience.
“The story of Little Women is about love and togetherness and support and dreaming big and choosing to move forward despite everyone around you saying, 'No you can’t,'” said Canne, who wrote the play and also stars as Jo March.
The show comes on the heels of the Thanksgiving holiday and gives audiences a chance to transition into the winter holidays.
“It’s a really good holiday show about family and appreciating who you have,” said Sierra Smith, who plays Amy March.
