A new musical inspired by “Little Women” and the life of Louisa May Alcott

Book and lyrics by Rob. Lauer

Music by Rick Rea

(For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, Junior High Schools, Church Groups, Youth Theatres)

Set during the American Civil War. Tom-boy, Jo March, dreams of becoming a writer of Gothic thrillers, and has no interest in boys, romance or marriage. When her sisters begin pursuing romantic attachments, Jo — torn over the gender roles of the time — moves away to New York City to pursue a career. Family ties eventually pull her back home and threaten to undermine her dreams and aspirations. Through family trials and tragedies, Jo eventually finds her true voice as a writer; and a companion who loves her for the woman she is. First produced by the Western Wyoming College Department of Musical Theatre in 2007. It is  primarily a female cast and EVERY female has a big solo number. So if your theatre wants to show off a female cast, this is a great show to do…and the women are all different types and ages.
