The Hendersonville Performing Arts Company presents Little Women the Musical from March 24 through April 10.
The show, based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic book “Little Women,” has performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. ‘Little Women’ played on Broadway back in 2005, but didn’t last long. While an accepted axiom is, “it’s always best to write what you know,” this is a remembrance of childhood in flashbacks leading to Jo discovering her true vocation as an author.
With the Civil War in full swing, and the March sisters — Meg, the oldest, a romantic; the spirited and tomboyish Jo; sweet and loving Beth; and feisty Amy — live in Concord, Massachusetts with their Marmee while their father is on the battlefield.
Filled with adventure (both lived and imagined), heartbreak and a deep sense of hope, the struggle of these “Little Women” to find their own voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America. With buoyant, joyful melodies, memorable characters, and a big-hearted message, Little Women reminds us that “sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true.”
