BY MICHAEL MARTIN –
This holiday season the Ouachita Little Theatre invites you on a heartwarming and nostalgic trip back in time all the way to the winter of 1863 amid the dim days of the Civil War, into the March home, where we will celebrate the classic family drama that is Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. This timeless play follows the coming of age stories of each of the four March daughters, Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy. The story validates virtue and family over wealth and reminds us that nothing is more valuable than the love of home and hearth. The Christmas production of the play will run December 5-7 and 12-14.
The play opens at Christmastime as the March girls prepare to celebrate the season in their own unique manner. Though the family has fallen on hard times, financially, and their father is absent due to the war, each girl finds it within herself to embrace the holiday spirit and make the season bright for each other and the whole family. Always brave and kind hearted and joyful, despite the dower circumstances, these original “all-American girls” will be sure to tug at the heart strings of the young and
