As an active member of the Lake Country community, we believe partnerships with other local organizations benefit the families we serve.
We are excited to partner with the Hartland Public Library - introducing HARTLAND'S BIG READ: LITTLE WOMEN


SEPTEMBER 5 - OCTOBER 28

Hartland's Big Read: Little Women
Hartland Public Library

Let's all read Louisa May Alcott's classic work as a community. Beginning September 5, copies of Alcott's novel for youth and adults will be available for check out at the Hartland Public Library.

HELPFUL HINT: Set a reading goal. Alcott's novel is packed full of beautiful language and descriptions of the March family. Setting a reading goal will ensure you stay on track and finish the novel in time to see the stage musical in the fall!

LITTLE WOMEN
music by JASON HOWLAND    lyrics by MINDI DICKSTEIN    book by ALLAN KNEE         

Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, follow the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. Little Women celebrates the strength and bond of family, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit.

PS! Don't miss the special LCPinCONTEXT post-show discussion following the 2:00pm matinee on October 8. Join members of the cast and creative team as they discuss the play you just saw!


Join teachers and students from the Playhouse Performing Arts Academy as they lead us in songs and scenes from Little Women. We'll even make a craft inspired by the book! Light refreshments will be served, too!
