Performances will be from May 8-10 and May 16-18 in The Lair at Battle Ground High School
BATTLE GROUND — Battle Ground High School Drama is set to perform the timeless classic “Little Women” beginning May 8. Presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International, this story of family and love is brought to life in with musical numbers about personal discovery, heartache and hope.
Based on the American novel “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott, the musical follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested. Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking his advice, Jo weaves a story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
With lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, music by Jason Howland and a script by by Allan Knee, “Little Women” the musical embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit.
Performances will be from May 8-10 and May 16-18 in The Lair at Battle Ground High School, 300 W. Main St. Performances will begin at 7 p.m. except for the final performance on May 18, which will be a special matinee featuring tea service, scones and muffins.
