Presented by Aria Entertainment and Hope Mill Theatre

‘Little Women‘, a timeless and captivating story, is brought to life in this glorious musical for the first time in Europe at the Hope Mill Theatre. Based on Louisa May Alcott’s critically acclaimed book and with a beautiful score by Grammy Award winner Jason Howland (composer ‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’) ‘Little Women‘ follows the adventures of the four March sisters – Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy.

 

Jo, the second eldest of the March daughters and an aspiring writer, receives yet another rejection from a publisher. Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells Jo she can do better by making her stories more personal. Begrudgingly, Jo weaves the story of how she and her sisters grew up in Civil War America – a tale of self-discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
