Little Women set to enchant audiences at the Hayes Theatre Co this July

Hayes Theatre Co Little WomenAn enchanting production that continues to resonate with audiences, Joshua Robson Productions presents Little Women at the Hayes Theatre Co from 12 July 2024.

Little Women captures the essence of sisterhood, love, and the pursuit of one’s dreams. In a world where gender equality and the empowerment of young people are ongoing conversations, Little Women serves as a poignant reminder of the strength and resilience of women throughout history.?

The March sisters’ triumphs and tribulations evoke the universal human experiences of love, loss, and personal growth. Little Women is a celebration of the human spirit, reminding us that – no matter the era – the power of love, family, and the pursuit of one’s passions will always resonate deeply within our hearts.

With direction and choreography by Amy Campbell (A Chorus Line, Once), their bold creative vision promises to illuminate the enduring themes of family, love and personal growth that resonate throughout Alcott’s work.

“What is exciting about this show in such an intimate and special venue is that there is nowhere to hide from the truth,” said director Amy Campbell. “You have to deliver the truth of this piece because the audience are onstage with you.”

Music supervisor Laura Tipoki (Hamilton) and music director Gianna Cheung (The Dismissal) will bring the enchanting musical score to life with its melodic beauty and emotional resonance.

Leading the cast in the iconic role of Jo March is the dynamic Shannen Alyce Quan. Known for their recent portrayals as Oolie in City of Angels and originating the role of Maria in Metropolis at the Hayes, Quan brings a depth of emotion and charisma to the stage that promises to capture the adventurous spirit of this beloved character.

Joining Quan are several other outstanding performers who will portray the March family and their companions. Kaori Maeda-Judge (The Dismissal, The Hello Girls) will take on the role of Meg March.

Molly Bugeja (Mary Poppins, West Side Story) will embody the sweetness and innocence of Beth March while Vitoria Hronopoulos (Laundry Shoot) will portray the vivacious and ambitious Amy March. Emily Cascarino (Mamma Mia, Wicked) will play the role of Marmee March while Tisha Kelemen makes her professional debut in the role of Aunt March.

In his first appearance at Hayes Theatre Co, veteran actor Peter Carroll (Into the Woods, Les Misérables) will portray Mr Lawrence, with Tyran Stig (Friends! The Parody Musical) as Professor Bhaer and Cameron Bajraktarevic-Hayward (A Christmas Carol, The Great Comet) as Mr John Brooke.
