Little Women the Broadway musical

Little Women the Broadway musical

WINNIPEG, AUGUST 15, 2012 Based on Louisa May Alcott’s own family experiences (and novel), Little Women the Broadway musical follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. The beloved story of the March sisters is timeless and deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written – the eternal search for balance between career, family and love. Now, this wonderful narrative has been brought to life as an exhilarat-ing new musical – a witty and clever script with soaring and engaging melodies that set a new standard for modern musical theatre. Not your grandmother’s Little Women, this modern exploration of a classic tale embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope.

Little Women the Broadway musical brings together a marvelous local cast: Stephanie Sy, Dorothy Carroll, Julie Lumsden and Emma Stefanchuk as the March sisters, Donna Fletcher as Marmee, Mariam Bernstein as Aunt March. Tom Soares as Prof. Bhaer, Aaron Hutton as Laurie, Tim Gledhill as John Brooke and Frank Adamson as Mr. Laurence.

The creative team is lead by Director Rob Herriot and Music Director Cary Denby and features the work of Set Designer Sheldon Johnson, Lighting Designer Bill Williams, Costumer Jan Malabar and Harlequin Costumes, Stage Manager Evan R. Klassen and Apprentice Stage Manager Matt Lagacé.

Tickets are priced at $35 for adults and $20 for students and are available in person at the Shaw Performing Arts Centre (M.T.Y.P.) box office, by phone at (204) 942-8898 and on line at
