Little Women on Theatre Bristol stage

October 26, 2016

Theatre Bristol presents "Little Women, The Broadway Musical" beginning Nov. 18 at the ARTspace, Bristol, Tenn.

"Little Women, The Broadway Musical," follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. Jo (Lorrie Anderson) longs to publish a novel. Meg (Emily Barnes) longs for a fiancé. Beth (Annika Burley) longs for a piano. Amy (Eden Phillips) longs to be admired. This timeless tale has been given new life as a musical filled with song, dance and a few tears. Author Louisa May Alcott's classic story celebrates personal discovery and coming of age in a time of challenge and transformation.

The sisters are joined by Marmee (Laura O'Bryan), Aunt March (Hyacynth Barbera), Laurie (Kerry Morton), Professor Bhaer (Anthony Underwood), Mr. Laurence (Dan Gray) and John Brooke (James Altman).

Directing this classic story is Theatre Bristol veteran David D. Hyde Jr., most recently Theatre Bristol production designer of "The Music Man," "Scrooge The Musical" and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Nicole Intagliata is stage manager and costumer, Steve Baskett is technical director, and Luke Gray is properties master.

"Little Women" runs from Nov. 18 to Dec. 4 at the Theatre Bristol ARTspace for nine shows over three weekends, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm. Box office opens 30 minutes prior to show time. Tickets are $12, with students and seniors $10 each, available online at www.TheatreBristol.org or by calling the reservation message line at 423-212-3625.
