Culver-Stockton College’s Department of Theatre is pleased to welcome audiences to campus for their production of Little Women, beginning Thursday, March 31. The show will include four performances, concluding on Sunday, April 3, 2022.
The classics come alive again as C-SC thespians take the stage in their final performance of the year to present Howland, Dickstein, and Knee’s musical adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s coming of age novel in this Broadway musical Little Women. Based loosely on Alcott’s life, the story follows sisters Meg (Cassie Williams), Jo (Megan Eaton), Beth (Kalista VanDerAa), and Amy March (Mackenzie Coleman-Portell) as each blends love, talent, and place in a society to find her happiness during the turbulent years during and immediately following the 1860’s American Civil War. Although their father, Reverend March, is away at war, the girls have a love for their dear Marmie (Kaitlyn Beth), the prim guidance of Great-Aunt March (Krista Barth), and the deep friendship of neighbors Laurie Laurence (Gavynn Gann), his grandfather, and his tutor to steady them in their quest.
Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. on March 31-April 2 and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 3 in the Mabee Foundation Theatre of the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center. Admission is free to C-SC students, faculty, and staff. Admission for the public is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
This production of Little Women is directed by David Lane, Lecturer of Speech and Theatre Education, with production design by Andy Trusley, Assistant Professor of Theatre.
