ISU Theatre: Little Women (the musical)

Author: Stacey Maifeld | Image: Stacey Maifeld

Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott. The four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are about to spend their first Christmas without their father who is away at war. Jo longs to be a writer; Amy aspires to be an artist; Beth is musical and hopes someday to have a piano in the house; and Meg looks forward to being a wife and mother. There isn’t much money, but the girls have the deeper security of knowing they are loved. The four grow from childhood to adulthood and some of their dreams come true.
