Johnstown’s Candlelight Dinner Playhouse presents Little Women, opening April 8 and running through June 6.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested. On the advice of her friend, Professor Bhaer, Jo weaves the story of herself, her sisters, and their experience growing up in Civil War America. The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache, and hope – the sounds of a young American finding her voice.
