This adaptation, by Tomas Hischak, remains very faithful to Louisa May Alcott's timeless and deeply influential work. The story, narrated by the older Josephine March, follows the four March "little women" and their family and community as the girls grow from young sisters to young women, bolstered by imagination and the strong love within their family. This is a story of finding the balance between independence and the strong ties of family, as Jo March makes her way in the world, not only as her own person but also charting new territory for women.

Auditions will include scenes from the script.
