Originally written by Louisa May Alcott, and published in two volumes, in 1868 and 1869, “Little Women” is a classic tale with a message of warmth, family loyalty and traditional values. The plot follows the journeys of the March sisters, from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War, as they live through good times and endure through bad times, sharing the joys and pains of growing up.
Audiences of all generations follow eldest Meg (played by Hannah Paul, of Almena), high-spirited tomboy Jo (Natalie Poppe, of Chetek), self-centered beauty Amy (Kami Klemme, of Rice Lake) and gentle Beth (Lana Blumer, of Chetek), as well as their beloved, Marmie (Stacey Malmanger, of New Auburn), and their father (Tim Borstad, of Cameron). Other cast members include Earl Leach, of Chetek; Anders Borstad and Amelia Guider, of Cameron; Beth Halverson, Arietta Andreasen and Zoey Frandsen, of Barron; Aspen Malmanger, of New Auburn; Elaina Poppe and Phoenix Blue-Koszalka, of Prairie Farm; Amy Kirby, of Bloomer; and Jared Rogers, Lee Namtvedt, Maddy Gilbert and Mari Gilbert, of Rice Lake.
