Directed by Dr. Francene Kirk, “Little Women” is based upon Louisa May Alcott's 19th century novel. The musical brings to life the March family of Concord, Mass. In a time of war and sacrifice, Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth, guided by their mother Marmee, grow from girls into women, through romance and courtship, illness and loss loving and letting go.
The upcoming 150th anniversaries of West Virginia’s statehood and the Civil War were two reasons “Little Women” was selected as the next production of Fairmont State University’s Town & Gown Summer Theatre.
