The University of Texas at Tyler’s School of Visual and Performing Arts will present to East Texas the musical production of Little Women, Dr. Molly Johnson, UT Tyler assistant professor of music, announced.
As the university’s annual musical, Little Women will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 and again at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. Both performances will take place in the UT Tyler R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center’s Vaughn Auditorium.
“Little Women opened on Broadway in 2005 and has only recently become available for local organizations to produce. We are excited to be among the first in the area to present this delightful musical and to showcase our talented university students,” said Johnson, who serves as the show’s artistic director.
Tickets may be purchased at the door and are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors. There is no admission charge for UT Tyler students, faculty and staff.
Little Women is the successful Broadway adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel by the same name, which was first published in 1868. The charming family story focuses on the four March sisters: Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth and their beloved Marmee, while the family patriarch is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War.
