Youth Theater presents 'Little Women' at Aud

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

The Youth Community Theater of Eureka Springs will present two performances of "Little Women" at 7 p.m Aug. 1 and 2 at the Auditorium. The performances are free.

Published in 1868, Louisa May Alcott's best-known novel tells the story of the four March sisters -- Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth -- and their home life in New England during the Civil War. The stage version was originally commissioned and produced by The Children's Theater Company of Minneapolis, and adapted from the novel by Marisha Chamberlain.

Youth Community Theater is a free program for youth 11 to 18 that promotes self-confidence and public speaking skills, and offers experience on stage and behind the scenes. It was started in January of 2013 by Doug Phillips and Josh Mollenkamp, a graduate theater student, as Mollenkamp's thesis project. The first two sessions culminated in performances, and the third session focused on the production of a one-act play.

"Little Women" is the culmination of the 2014 summer session, which started June 5. For more information, go to youthcommunitytheater.com.
