Little Women: OnlineAdapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic book by Scott Davidson; Directed by Julie Wharton
May 30, 2020
Saturday at 7:30 pm
Presented as a one time only live streaming event from the homes of our actors directly to YOUR home!
About our production: When we closed our doors due to COVID-19, we thought we might be closed for 3-4 weeks. We quickly moved to online rehearsals for Little Women, thinking that we might be able to get back onstage as soon as it was safe to reopen. But we’ve realized that the better place to present this play will be online. And so rehearsals shifted: instead of practicing to be on the stage, we started practicing to be on the screen.
Instead of working on stage movement, actors are noting their posture and distance in regards to their webcam. Lighting is asking an actor to re-position a floor lamp instead of having a lighting designer create intricate cues that change at the push of a button. Even in this seemingly disconnected space, actors are connecting beautifully to each other, to the script, and to the characters.
The story: Share this timeless and enduring classic about the March sisters’ journey from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War. Audiences of all generations will enjoy acquainting — or reacquainting — themselves with the sisters: Meg, the eldest; Jo, the high-spirited tomboy; Amy, the self-centered beauty; and gentle Beth, as well as their beloved Marmee and Father. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad as they share the joys and pains of growing up.
