Spring-Ford Area High School presents ‘Lit­tle Women’

The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - ARTS - From Erin Crew Spring-Ford Area School Dis­trict

Spring-Ford Area High School The­atre presents Lit­tle Women on Nov. 16 and 17 at the Spring-Ford Area High School Au­di­to­rium. The story of Lit­tle Women, Louisa M. Al­cott’s fa­mous novel, is so well known and so well 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.

On Satur­day, Nov. 17, join friends and fam­ily for a free Mommy and Me Tea event, be­gin­ning at 1:30 p.m. Meet the char­ac­ters while en­joy­ing free tea and as­sorted bev­er­ages and light re­fresh­ments. Please be sure to se­lect the cor­rect ticket type for Satur­day’s show. There is no ad­di­tional cost for the Mommy and Me Tea.

Tick­ets are Adult $10; Stu­dent $8. Tick­ets are avail­able on­line or in per­son. Visit the web­site at spring-ford.net to re­serve your tick­ets and seats on­line.
