ANN ARBOR – "Little Women," the beloved American story of the March sisters growing up in Civil War-era New England, returns to Ann Arbor as part of Wild Swan Theater's 38th season. The production will have six performances from Dec. 7 through 10 and is sure to charm audiences once again as it did several years ago. 

The play, based on Louisa May Alcott's classic novel, focuses on Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth, all of whom are facing life together after their mother leaves to visit their ailing father on the warfront. The book is loosely based on the Alcott's family life, exploring how each young woman develops over the course of time and conquers her personal weaknesses. The story could not be more timely, as there have been women like the fictional March sisters who must struggle against society’s expectations and create their own destinies throughout our nation’s history. This production of the play, written by Wild Swan’s co-founder and co-artistic director Hilary Cohen, delivers an inspiring message of resourcefulness and perseverance for children ages 8 and up; and their families. Don't miss your chance to see "Little Women," just in time for the holidays. 

Wild Swan Theater is dedicated to producing professional theater of the highest artistic quality for families and to making that theater accessible to everyone, including low-income, minority and disabled children through low ticket prices and innovative outreach programs.
