Little WomenThis musical version of LITTLE WOMEN was commissioned by Theatre Orangeville and received its Premiere Production there in December of 2001.

The story takes place over a one-year period, from Christmas to Christmas, and is set in New England during the time of  the American Civil War.

Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, this new musical  adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel tells the timeless tale of  the four unforgettable March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. With their father  at war and their mother left to raise the family on her own, their struggles for survival teach an invaluable lesson to each girl. Touched by joy and adversity, and all that conspires to tear the Marches apart, these “little women” discover what great love and courage can be found in the bonds of sisterhood and priceless gift of family.
