Husson University’s Annual Spring Musical “Little Women”
- Date: April 20, 2018 - April 22, 2018
- Location: Gracie Theatre , Bangor
Husson University’s New England School of Communications’ (NESCom) entertainment production degree program presentsLittle Women. This entertaining Broadway musical will be at the Gracie Theatre from April 20 – 22 and promises to be fun for the whole family.
The musical is based on the classic novel by American author Louisa May Alcott. It was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869. The novel, Little Women, follows the lives of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. It details their passage from childhood to womanhood and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters. The lead character, Jo March, wants to become a novelist. Little Women is a family drama that validates virtue over wealth and details Jo’s quest to overcome gender constraints in her life and career -- an issue prevalent in the 1860’s that persists today.
Performances of Little Women are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. in the Gracie Theatre. A matinee performance will take place on Sunday, April 22 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $3 for students with a valid student ID and $5 for general admission.
Tickets can only be purchased at the door with cash prior to the performance. Those interested in getting the best seats are encouraged to arrive early since seating is limited to 96 people for each performance. Ticket sales begin one hour before show time.
