Commonweal Theatre Company presents Little Women


Mon, Nov 9th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Features

LANESBORO, MN. — The Commonweal Theatre Company presents its own adaptation of the beloved American classic, Little Women, November 21 through December 20. Discounted tickets are available for previews November 13 to November 20. Call the box office at (800) 657-7025 or visit Commonweal Theatre online at www.commonwealtheatre.org for exact performance dates and times.

The story of the March family and the four daughters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy – has enthralled readers since it was first published in 1869. The story of their cherished, and sometimes painful, memories of growing up and growing apart has been adapted numerous times for stage and screen and is once again receiving the “Commonweal touch”. The adaptation was first produced at the Commonweal in 2010.

“We have the opportunity to re-visit our successful 2010 production with some design re-imaginings and the ability to showcase the talents of our three very talented female acting apprentices,” says Commonweal Executive Director Hal Cropp, who directs the show in addition to having had a hand in the creation of the adaptation along with Commonweal resident ensemble member Scott Dixon and former company member Stef Dickens. “The heart of the story,” states Cropp, “lies in a family coming together to celebrate their first Christmas after having endured a terrible loss. Audiences will see their favorite scenes from the novel played out in flashback as the March family works to embrace the love and joy of the season.”

Portraying the March daughters will be Commonweal resident ensemble member Megan K. Pence and Commonweal apprentice class members Abbie Cathcart, Elizabeth Dunn, and Kami Spaulding. Little Women will also feature Commonweal resident ensemble members Scott Dixon, Gary Danciu, Brandt Roberts, and seasonal actress Allison Alden in her Commonweal debut.

This production of Little Women will be stage managed by Bailey Otto. Ms. Otto, along with Production Manager and Props Designer Thomas White, leads a design team consisting of Kit Mayer (sets), Janis Martin (costumes), David Wasserman (sound), and Dietrich Poppen (lights). There will be discounted preview performances on November 13, 14, 19, and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and on November 15 at 1:30 p.m. Each preview performance is followed by a post-performance discussion with the director. Little Women officially .....
