Manchester's Hope Mill Theatre is to host the European premiere of Little Women the musical.
Little Women follows the adventures of the four March sisters – Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy. Jo, the eldest daughter, and an aspiring writer, receives yet another rejection from a publisher. When her friend Professor Bhaer tells Jo she can do better by making her stories more personal, she weaves the story of how she and her sisters grew up in Civil War America – a tale of self-discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
Little Women is based on Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic novel and features a score by Grammy Award winner Jason Howland. The production which opens on 9 November is directed by Bronagh Lagan and choreographed by Iona Holland with design by Nik Corrall.
Little Women will be a collaboration between Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and the Hope Mill Theatre co-produced with Knockhardy Productions.
Aria Entertainment director and producer Katy Lipson says: “This is our 5th production at Hope Mill Theatre in just over a year and we couldn't be more excited to be presenting the European Premiere of Little Women there. We have been touched by the support of our audiences and can't wait to reveal our 2018 plans.”
Little Women the musical will play at The Hope Mill Theatre from 9 November – 9 December 2017.
