"Villanova's production is fast-paced and high-spirited. Director Joyce has assembled a solid ensemble of under-grads and MA students and guided them to an end product that is both funny and touching. Her directorial touches are subtle and allow the actors the freedom to create."

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s American classic, this Civil War story of love, family, and independence stands the test of time.

In a tale filled with adventure and imagination, heartache and hope, the struggle of these “little women” to find their voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America. This dazzling new musical has captured the hearts of a new generation with its buoyant, joyful melodies, memorable characters, and big-hearted message.
