"Little Women" Next Production At The Red Door Theatre

Kit and Kaboodle Productions presents Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic "Little Women" at The Red Door Theatre, 152 S. Westfield St., Feeding Hills on Feb. 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 and $8 senior & student.

The play begins that memorable Christmas morning during the Civil War when Marmee (Margie Secora of Southwick) leaves to visit her sick husband and Jo (Jaime Pearsons of Suffield, CT) sells her beautiful hair to help finance the trip. It ends just a year later when the happy family is again preparing to celebrate, not only Christmas, but the return of Mr. March.

In between these two events, we again live, laugh, love and cry with Meg (Alexandra O'Halloran of Suffield, CT), Beth (Kati Lewantowicz of Southampton) and Amy (Marie Hannoush of West Springfield) as they go through the many trials and tribulations that have made this story a classic.

This adaptation by Kristan Lawrence, features a cast of nine women: Hannah the housekeeper (Nancy Klueh of Agawam), Aunt March (Cil D'Angelo of Ludlow), Aunt Carroll (Josie Holdsworth of Feeding Hills) and Sally Moffatt (Deanna McCool of Agawam).

Seating is limited and reservations are strongly suggested. Call (413) 789-2026 for tickets or information.
