Family and Determination in "Little Women" at Strauss Theatre


Little Women is a story of family and determination to face the problems of life during crisis. Based on the novel by the same name by Louisa May Alcott, the story follows the lives of the four sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March during the American Civil War and the trials they face throughout the year. Beginning and ending during Christmas, Little Women will get the audience ready for the holidays and entertain those of all ages. 

Ben McQuillin, stage manager for the production, says, "After both parents have to leave because of the war, the sisters are left to their own devices. The story is about this turbulent time in their lives and having to grow up especially during such a drastic national shift like the Civil War."
