The Royal Players proudly presents Little Women: The Broadway Musical by Allan Knee, lyrics by Mindi Dickerson and music by Jason Howland. Based on Louisa May Alcott’s 1868–69 semi-autobiographical novel, it focuses on the four March sisters.
There’s the traditional Meg, the wild, aspiring writer Jo, the timid Beth and the romantic Amy. They, along with their beloved Marmee, are at home in Concord, MA, while their father is away serving as a Union Army Chaplain during the Civil War. Little Women is sponsored by Stilwell Insurance & Financial Services and Roberson & Associates Insurance.
About the Play
This timeless classic is based on the famous Louisa May Alcott children’s book. Little Women is a “coming of age” drama tracing the lives of four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. During the American Civil War, the girls’ father is away serving as a minister to the troops. The family, headed by beloved mother, Marmee, must struggle to make ends meet, with the help of their kind and wealthy neighbor, Mr. Laurence, and his grandson Laurie. The household also includes the servant, Hannah. who has become more family than help. Cantankerous Aunt March surprises the girls; and, of course, they have romantic interests: John Brooke and Professor Bhaer.
