Directed by Aaron Petersen and produced by Eli Johnson, this year’s show features a cast of 12 students led by the March sisters (above, from left) — tempestuous Jo (Meghan Johnson), motherly Meg (Lydia Cavanaugh), shy Beth (Abi Renteria-Rojas) and spiled baby Amy (Makayla Belgarde, walking across stage). The cast rehearsed an early scene from the show.
The play, adapted by Marisha Chamberlin and based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, is about two hours with a 15-minute intermission. Under the guidance of their beloved mother, the four young March sisters struggle to keep their family going while their father is away fighting in the Civil War. In this dramatized adaptation of the novel, even as privation, illness and sibling rivalry cast shadows, each girl strives to find her purpose.
