Little Women was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869 by American author Louisa May Alcott.
The story following the lives of the four March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. It details their passage from childhood to womanhood and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters.
The play is directed by Lyn Greer and Ian Rehbein, who are well known to Playhouse audiences.
Ian said it is shaping up to be a great production.
“We are very pleased to bring this classic to the stage in Bundaberg,” Ian said.
“It's such a well known story and this play follows the first volume, full of joy and happiness, with none of the sadness of the second volume.”
Lyn agreed. “It is a fascinating story of young women growing up and all the actresses have worked very hard to bring the story to life” Lynn said.
“Combined with beautiful costumes and a lovely set with many authentic touches, we are looking forward to a great season.”
