SYNOPSIS: This production follows the timeless and enduring classic about the March sisters and the beginning of their journey into womanhood.  Audiences of all generations will enjoy acquainting — or reacquainting — themselves with the sisters:  Meg, the eldest; Jo, the high-spirited tomboy; Amy, the self-centered beauty; and gentle Beth, as well as their beloved Marmee and Father.  Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad as they share the joys and pains of growing up. 

 

CHARACTERS: 

 Casting for 7 female and 4 male roles

 

MEG MARCH (female, 17-23s). Oldest March sister. Frustrated by family’s poverty,  very mature and reserved, tries to do what is right. A caring sibling. 

 

JO MARCH (female, 16-20s). Second-oldest March sister. Hot tempered, impassioned, driven, ambitious, but ultimately incredibly generous. A tom boy. 

 

BETH MARCH (female, 12-16). Second-youngest March sister. Pure goodness. Sweet and generous to a fault. Only one able to melt Mr. Laurence.

 

AMY MARCH (female, 8-12). Youngest March sister. Conceited and self-centered, very concerned about her image, but learns to become a gracious woman.

 

MARMEE MARCH (female, 40+)The mother of the four sisters. Her strength and spirit hold the family together even in the face of her husband being off at war and the family being poor.

 

MR. LAURENCE (male, 40+). Stern, commanding, intimidating—until Beth wins him over. Grandfather to Laurie.

 

LAURIE LAURENCE (male, 16-25s). Mr. Laurence’s grandson. Lonely. Vivacious. Desperate for friends. Becomes best friends with the sisters. 

 

HANNAH (Female, 30+) servant. She has been with the family since before the girls were born. She is considered more of family member then a servant. Her dry humor and abrupt manner do not conceal her warm and loyal affection for the family.

 

AUNT MARCH (Female 40+). Formidable, over-bearing matron. A lioness. Often scary. Quite well off, but rarely overtly generous. Believes absolutely in manners and proper society. Preferred mode of communication is to yell.

 

MR. JOHN BROOKE (male, 16-25). Strong, both outwardly and inwardly, but also a romantic. Laurie’s tutor. Kind and generous.

 

MR. MARCH ( male, 40+) Mr. March is away during the Civil War, leaving the ladies to worry about his well-being. When he is home, however, he’s a caring, considerate father.
