LITTLE WOMEN COVER PHOTO.png

Director: Callison Hopkins

Vocal Director: Jennifer Rushton

Choreographer: Brooke Jerome

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.
