Little Women: The Musical
October 7 - October 16, 2011
The Louisa May Alcott classic story comes to life at the Arsenal Center for the Arts this fall as the Wellesley Players perform Little Women. Helmed by Celia Couture, acclaimed director of recent Wellesley Players productions Fiddler on the Roof and Steel Magnolias, Little Women will warm audience hearts as the March sisters endure without their father, a chaplain in the Union army during the Civil War. This coming-of-age story is set not far from Wellesley, as Louisa May Alcott's family home in Concord is the basis for the March estate depicted in the familiar novel and musical. Little Women will be music directed by Shawn Gelzleichter and choreographed by Kelly Murphy.
