The Theater Department at Moraine Valley Community College will present an adaptation of “Little Women,” April 26 through May 5 in the Fine and Performing Arts Center, 9000 W. College Parkway, Palos Hills.

Tickets for the show, which will be held in the John and Angeline Oremus Theater, will be $15, $12 for seniors and $10 for students with ID, and children.

Students cast in the performance include Natalie Jurcik, of Bridgeview, as Meg March; Ashlyn Wiebe, of Chicago, as Josephine ‘Jo’ March; Shannon Madden, of Justice, as Beth March; Valerie Triolo, of Tinley Park, as Amy March; Kelly Fitzgerald, of Chicago Ridge, as Marmee; and Destiny Patino, of Merrionette Park, as Aunt March. Also, Andrew Kuntz, of Alsip, as Laurie Laurence; Brian Walsh, of Chicago, as Mr. Brooke; Tim McCarthy, of Tinley Park, as Mr. Laurence;, Phil Montanez, of Naperville, as Professor Bhaer; Ja’Korey Higgs-Jackson, of Birmingham, AL, as Mr. Dashwood; and Jack Higgins, of Chicago, as Mr. March.

The academic performance, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the publication of the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, is adapted and directed by Dan Scott, an acting and theater appreciation instructor at the college. “The adaptation was originally written for a theater company I worked for in the late ‘90s. In it, I tried to stay as faithful to the original as I could, while still keeping it interesting as a piece of theater,” Scott said. Theater goers are invited to follow the March sisters as they navigate the sometimes difficult passage from girlhood into womanhood.
