Little Women The Musical

 San Diego -- Christian Youth Theater (CYT) students from San Diego East County present an original production of Little Women The Musical at Crawford High School Performing Arts Center, February 25 - March 6. 

                  In 1868, in response to a publisher’s request for a “girls’ book,” a struggling young writer named Louisa May Alcott drew upon the memory of her own family to produce Little Women. Never before had a novel explored the trials and tribulations in a coming of age story from a girl’s point of view. The book has been cherished by young and old ever since and became an instant classic novel for American literature. Little Women, The Musical, an original CYT production, brings to life the characters of the March family.  The growing pains of Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth March come to life on the stage as each sister explores her own dreams, desires, and fears.          

The cast of 67 includes Donna Louden of Ramona as Marmie, the loving matriarch of the March family. Others include two young Santee women, Elizabeth Phalan as the sensible oldest sister Meg and Alli Faucher as the prim and proper young Amy. Courtney Evans from El Cajon plays the headstrong, outspoken Jo. Cassie Bowerman from La Mesa plays the quiet, loving sister, Beth.  Katleyn Bruggema of El Cajon will portray the older Amy, grown-up and married. Marshall Hattersley of Lakeside will be John Brook. Tim Manns of El Cajon is Professor Bauer, Jo's German friend from New York. Amanda Gamble of El Cajon will play the acerbic old Aunt March. Additional students work on the technical aspects of the show as backstage crew, lighting and sound technicians and assist as ushers
