Little Women: A Tel Hai Performing Arts Series Event

Saturday, September 22, 7:30 pm
StoneCroft Center for Worship & Performing Arts

SALT Performing Arts Center from Chester Springs will bring ‘Little Women’ to the Tel Hai campus for this very special performance. Louisa M. Alcott’s famous novel is so well known and loved that it is hardly surprising that many attempts have been made to portray its characters upon the stage. None has yet been so successful, however, as this brilliant dramatization by Peter Clapham. The structure of the play faithfully covers that of the novel, interweaving the lives of the March girls, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, and Laurie, the boy next door, as they grow up happily together – yet the action is contained neatly in one set. All the overtones of gaiety and the undertones of sadness are here, bringing the story completely to life in a way which is both accurate and dramatically satisfying.
