Based on Louisa May Alcott's novelization of her life, LITTLE WOMEN has been praised by critics for its ambition in successfully adapting such a beloved story for the stage. The timeless, captivating tale follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in the midst of the Civil War. Jo is a writer intent on selling her stories for publication, but no one is interested - that is, until she receives the advice that she would do better to write more of her own experiences. Filled with personal discovery, the heartache of loss, and the hope of everlasting love, this musical embodies a complete theatrical experience, boasting a powerful score that soars with the sound of young American women finding their voice.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

JOSEPHINE “JO” MARCH is our story’s protagonist and the second-oldest of the March sisters. Jo is a writer with a temper and a quick tongue, although she works hard to control both. She is a tomboy, and reacts with impatience to the many limitations placed on women. Wanting nothing more than to hold her family together, she is slow to warm to romance. (Gender: Female  / Vocal Range: TBD / Monologue: TBD / Callback Song: TBD)

MEG MARCH is the world-weary yet hopeful oldest March sister. Responsible and kind, Meg mothers her younger sisters. She yearns for a great life and has a small weakness for luxuries, but for the most part is gentle, loving, and morally vigorous. (Gender: Female / Vocal Range: TBD / Monologue: TBD / Callback Song: TBD)

BETH MARCH is the quiet and virtuous second-youngest March sister, who tragically dies of Scarlet Fever. She is a peace-making optimist who always encourages her sisters to dream. (Gender: Female / Vocal Range: TBD / Monologue: TBD / Callback Song: TBD)
