Join Nelson Youth Theatre as this timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. Produced on Broadway, Little Women – The Broadway Musical has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage.
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 – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
