Northwestern theatre to present 'Little Women' Oct. 4-6

September 28, 2012

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s first theatre production of the season starts with “Little Women” – a delightful adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel where the four spirited March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy – sustain their family in the absence of their father, who is away fighting the Civil War.

This show begins Thursday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in Herod Hall Auditorium, with additional performances on Friday, Oct. 5, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m.

Ticket prices are $7 for general admission, $5 for Northwestern faculty and staff and $3 for all students with an ID.

Little Women is adapted by Jacqueline Goldfinger. The sisters are led by their devoted Marmee, and each girl struggles to overcome her own limitations to become the best version of herself, even in the midst of disease, jealousy and poverty.
