Little Women Auditions Coming Soon

Anamosa - Auditions for Little Women will be held October 2, 3, 4 of 2011 at 7 pm at the Starlighters Theatre in Anamosa. The director is Jan Cratsenberg (Monticello). For more information, e-mail

Based on one of the most popular pieces of literature, Little Women follows the joys and hardships of the four young and inseparable March sisters: outspoken Jo, motherly Meg, quiet Beth, and worldly Amy. While at home with their mother and beloved cook, Hannah, they anxiously await their father's return from the Civil War. The girls wrestle with the problems of poverty and everyday life, but with wisdom from Marmee and the love of family, we watch them mature and grow. Written by Peter Clapham, and based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, the play faithfully brings the story of this timeless classic to the stage, weaving together the lives of the March sisters and their neighbor, Laurie. Little Women will make you laugh, cry and appreciate what is truly important in life.
