Musical Theatre of Anthem Presents

Anthem, AZ, June 22, 2022 – Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces their upcoming production of Little Women.

Produced nationally and internationally, Little Women has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.

The talented cast, comprised of award-winners and nominees ages 13-19 with 2-3 additional adult roles, presents the show SEPTEMBER 22 - 25, 2022, in Anthem with a streaming option available. The award-winning production staff includes Director Jackie Hammond, Vocal Director Cris Wo, Choreographer Shawna Weitekamp and Co-Production Stage Managers Jessica Kishbaugh and Sierra Litman.
