Rehearsal images have been released for the upcoming revival of musical Little Women, based on Louise May Alcott’s novel of the same name. The production begins performances at Park Theatre from 11 November.
Cast includes Ryan Bennet as Professor Bhaer, Hana Ichijo as Meg, Sev Keoshgerian as Laurie, Anastasia Martin as Beth, Mary Moore as Amy, Bernadine Pritchett as Aunt March, Brian Protheroe as Mr Lawrence, Lejaun Sheppard as John Brooke, Savannah Stevenson as Marmee and Lydia White as Jo.
Little Women follows the adventures of the four March sisters – Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy. Jo, the second eldest of the March daughters and an aspiring writer, receives yet another rejection from a publisher. Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells Jo she can do better by making her stories more personal. Begrudgingly, Jo weaves the story of how she and her sisters grew up in Civil War America – a tale of self-discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
The production has a book by stage and screen writer Allan Knee, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, music by Grammy Award-winner Jason Howland and is directed by Bronagh Lagan.
