Little Women, the Musical follows the saga of the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—as they grow up in Civil War America. Based on Louisa May Alcott's family experiences, the much loved story is timeless as it deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written. This wonderful narrative, brought to life as an exhilarating musical, is filled with glorious music, dancing and heart.ÿ It is a production that will appeal to audiences of all ages.
