Little Women Comes to Life at Prana

by Roberta Weiner
February 13, 2013

More than 30 Holliston children and teens bring Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic, Little Women, to life at the Prana Center. 

Shows are Thursday, February 28 at 6 pm, Friday, March 1 at 7 pm, Saturday, March 2 at 1:30 and 7 pm and Sunday, March 3 at 1:30 pm.

More than 30 Holliston children and teens bring Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic, Little Women, to life at the Prana Center.  Shows are Thursday, February 28 at 6 pm, Friday, March 1 at 7 pm, Saturday, March 2 at 1:30 and 7 pm and Sunday, March 3 at 1:30 pm. 
 
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.
 
The Saturday and Sunday shows are virtually sold out.  Tickets are being sold only through the Prana Center - email roberta@pranacenter.com
 
Tickets: $15 for adults and $10 for children under age 15.

Cast and creative team of Little Women do some historical research by visiting Orchard House in Concord, home of author Louisa May Alcott.

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!

What a nice story to do a play about and also a good historical learning opportunity! Kudos to all involved!
