Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women” To Be Staged By Bishop Ireton High School

Bishop Ireton High School is staging “Little Women” from Nov. 15-23, 2019 with a cast of 14 student actors. The show is adapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic novel from the 1860s and written by Scott Davidson. The story follows the lives of the four March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy — and their passage from childhood to womanhood.

Director Joanna Henry said, "I really liked the message of ‘Little Women’ with strong family values, and I just thought it would be a good play for Bishop Ireton to do. It’s centered around Jo March; it’s her story. Beth dies and Jo and Beth had a very close relationship it affects Jo and the whole family, and it’s about the strength of family ties." According to the Alexandria Gazette, "One of the biggest challenges in staging this production was the renovation the school is experiencing, she said. “The school is undergoing massive construction, so all of our set pieces and props were put in an off-storage site, and we’re not able to get access to them. So, we’re not having walls. We’re going to have silhouettes, archways, and windows,” she said. “We’re doing a very creative interpretation of the set and doing a lot with lighting. I think it is going to be an interesting play visually for that. Everyone has been very flexible and helpful so I think it’s going to look great.”
