“Sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true, in extraordinary ways. Suddenly a day can be so amazing.” Dundalk Community Theatre concludes its season with the musical adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved story Little Women. This Tony Award-nominated musical is not only reflective of American history, but reminds us all how important family is and always has been.
The show runs from April 29th to May 8th. Individual tickets are $23 for adults, $20 for senior adults and $15 for students/DCT Actors/Children 12 and under.
Little Women, with book by Allan Knee, music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, is based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel, which follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. Jo longs to publish a novel. Meg believes she has found a fiancé. Beth enjoys playing the piano and Amy just wants to be seen for who she is. The story is a coming of age tale during times of challenge and transformation in America. The plot is only enhanced by some touching musical numbers and dance.
