Louisa May Alcott’s beloved children’s classic, Little Women, has captured the hearts of many generations since its original publication in 1868. Join sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy as they find their feet in this charming coming-of-age story.
Each of the March sisters has big dreams: loving Meg wants to be an actress, wild Jo longs to be a writer, gentle Beth is a talented pianist, and precocious Amy is a gifted painter. But growing up in Civil War New England comes with responsibilities. When their father goes to war, the four sisters must set their dreams aside and work hard to support their Marmee.
In the midst of financial instability and worries for their father’s safety, the girls set about making their own fun, putting on plays and creating their own Pickwick Club. With some help from the boy next door, Laurie, Little Women is a classic page-turning adventure filled with fun and heartbreaking reality.
