The show traces the story of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy from childhood to young adulthood, with much happiness as well as sadness along the way.  Modern girls will marvel at how their own problems are so similar to that of girls from the Civil War era.

Prana performances always surprise me because they transport me from Holliston to another place. I can't wait to meet Jo - one of my all-time favorites - and witness that period of time in Massachusetts!

Thanks, Angela! It was one of my favorite books as a child, so it's really fun sharing it with today's kids!
