Based on the novel by Louisa May
Alcott, "Little Women" is the story of a New England family with
four spirited girls growing up in the Civil War era. Under the
guidance of their beloved mother, the four young March sisters
struggle to keep their family going while Father is away fighting in
the war. In this beautifully dramatized adaptation of the classic
novel, each girl strives to find her true self even as privation,
illness and sibling rivalry cast their shadows.
Kasey Pepperell has the mother's role,
and Brandon Davis is cast as the father. In the roles of the sisters
are Lindsey Boerma as the tempestuous Jo, Amanda Perry as motherly
Meg, Rachel Kasa as shy Beth and Ashley O'Neill as spoiled baby Amy.
Additional cast members are Ruth Ohmart as Hannah, Erica O'Neill as
Aunt March, Brian Welter as Old Mr. Laurence, Doug Rohrer as Laurie
and Brady Gerdts as Brooke.
