Little Women opens Thursday at Arrowhead Center for the Arts
The Grand Marais Playhouse is ready to kick off its regular theatrical season April 19 with the production of Little Women adapted by Kristen Laurence from the beloved book by Louisa May Alcott. Opening night features a reception with the cast in the Arrowhead Center for the Arts lobby following the performance.
High School Senior Maria Nickolay directs this production. It is the first student-directed production in many years for the Playhouse. The cast of nine includes a mother/daughter/ granddaughter trio that makes this production a even more special. Janet Healy (Aunt March), her daughter Amy Henrikson (Marmee) and her granddaughter Linnea Henrikson (Amy) perform together in this wonderful story about family. The rest of the cast includes Mara MacDonnell (Jo), Cailin Carpenter (Meg), Sarah Larsen (Beth), Diane Stoddard (Hannah), Adrianna Berglund (Sally Mae), and Yvonne Block (Aunt Carol).
Assisting Maria as stage manager is Brenna Hay and Emma Bradley leads the costuming crew, creating the look of the Civil War era.
Don’t miss this opportunity to live, laugh, love and cry with Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth as they go through the many trials and tribulations that have made this story a classic.
Little Women runs April 19 - 22 and 26 – 29, Thursday – Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. Tickets are $10 adults and $5 students 18 and under.
