Thomas S. Wootton High School in Rockville will present the Broadway musical version of “Little Women,” with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. Sunday in the school auditorium at 2100 Wootton Parkway.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s story of four sisters and their mother during the Civil War, the show chronicles the sisters’ search for love and life’s meaning amidst uncertainty and death in a turbulent time in American history.
“The musical is a lovely treatment of a classic story,” director Carla Ingram said in a statement. “It is full of great music, with songs of hope that all will enjoy and embrace. It features strong and varied vocals in a production that helps define how musical theater can still communicate valuable life lessons for young people in today’s fast-changing world. Whether you have read the novel or not, the musical offers plenty of memorable moments that give you a new appreciation for Louisa May Alcott’s writing.”
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students. They may be purchased online at schooltix.org/wootton/ by selecting “Drama: Little Women” at the top of the page.
