Little Women, a story that never will grow old for its treatment of a mother’s love for her children and their appreciation. Who can forget tom boy Jo and her sacrificing her glorious hair to help finance her mother’s trip to Washington, when the telegram arrived saying her father was dying? Of her writing “The Christmas Play,” rehearsing Amy in the fainting scene and then the playing of the drama on the fateful night when everything went wrong. Her beautiful scenes with Little Beth when they both knew the Angel of Death was hovering near? Of her going to New York, meeting Professor Bhaer in Mrs. Kirk’s rooming house, their comedy courtship and ultimate marriage?
All performances will be at the Washington Street Theater Sixth and Washington Streets in Olean,Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM and again on Sunday at 2:30 PM. For more information visit us at http://www.oleanworkshop.org/tickets.html.
