All Teen Cast Performs Little Women at Dallas Children's Theater

DCT Teen Scene Players Present Little Women Feb 14th – 23rd

A NEW family musical!  This spirited and joyous adaptation performed by an all-teen cast celebrates life, love and home set against the background of the American Civil War.  A timeless story that has captured the hearts of readers for nearly 150 years!  Be inspired by all the adventures, hopes and dreams of unforgettable sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy.

Playwright for “Little Women” Linda Daugherty said, “The genius of Louisa May Alcott is that she created characters with qualities in each of the girls that we can all identify with.  That’s why we still cry and laugh and feel with these characters today.”

B.Wolf created the music and lyrics for the production of “Little Women” including “An Operatic Tragedy,” a melodrama mini-opera by the March girls as well as “Aunt March,” emphasizing a clashing of personalities between Jo and grouchy Aunt March. “The Great River of Life” is the finale and gives people an inspirational feel as they leave the show.

Even for modern teens, this production has the power to resonate with those who may not have read the book. “It’s great to offer this opportunity to today’s teens,” said Nancy Schaeffer, the director of “Little Women.” “They get the chance to step back in time and experience how much has changed since then and also realize that so much has stayed the same. I’m excited about giving our young people a chance to appreciate this story firsthand.”

DCT’s teen and young adult programming focuses on issues and interests of the underserved teen audience.  In response to the many requests for more performance opportunities for teens, DCT’s Academy introduced the Teen Scene Players, an advanced acting training course for young adults, with an added level of professionalism by including public performances.  All classes taught in the DCT Academy culminate in a presentation for invited family and friends on DCT’s stages, however, the Teen Scene Players class culminates in a DCT Season Special performance open to the public.

Enjoyed by ages 9 and up
