Wild Swan Theater – Little Women
December 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 10, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
WILD SWAN THEATER PRESENTS ORIGINAL ADAPTATION OF LITTLE WOMEN, DECEMBER 7 – 10, 2017 Wild Swan Theater, an award-winning professional theater company based in Ann Arbor, continues its 38th Season with an original stage adaptation of Little Women, the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. This production which charmed audiences several years ago returns to the stage for six performances from December 7th -10th. Little Women is the beloved American story of the March sisters, Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth, who are growing up in Civil War-era New England. When their devoted mother Marmee leaves them to visit their ailing father at the warfront, the girls must face life together. Loosely based on the author’s family life, the story explores how each young woman develops their character by overcoming personal weaknesses. It also offers a testimony to the strength of womanhood in the character of the girls’ mother, Marmee (Margaret). Throughout our nation’s history there have been women like the fictional March sisters who must struggle against society’s expectations and create their own destinies. Written by Wild Swan’s Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director Hilary Cohen, this production delivers an inspiring message of resourcefulness and perseverance for children ages 8+ and their families. Backstage touch tours and audio-description are available for blind theater patrons. These services are free but must be reserved in advance by calling (734) 995-0530. Wild Swan Theater is dedicated to making professional theater of the highest artistic quality for young people and families that is accessible, diverse and inclusive, through affordable ticket prices and innovative outreach programs.
