About Little Women
Adapted by Marsha Chamberlain
(Taken from the Playscripts, Inc website)
Under the guidance of their beloved mother, the four young March sisters — tempestuous Jo, motherly Meg, shy Beth, and spoiled baby Amy — struggle to keep their family going while Father’s away in the Civil War. In this beautifully dramatized adaptation of the classic novel, even as privation, illness, and sibling rivalry cast their shadows, each girl strives to find her true self.

Teen Company & Advanced Teen Company Class
Teen Company Theatre Class
Students will: Focus on the audition process, working on monologues and cold reads, study movement and voice to appropriately portray a character in performance, generate interpretations of scenes & characters, and learn to take risks in creating character choices–failure & making mistakes is part of the process!
Advanced Teen Company Theatre Class
Students will: complete readings in relationship to class work, hone acting techniques, timing, & emotional range, develop a new audition monologue (focusing on range of tragedy and comedy), generate interpretations of scenes & characters, and develop confidence in performing instincts.
Students who are in the 2018-19 Advanced Teen Company Class do not need to interview/audition for Winter/Spring 2019 unless specifically instructed to do so. They will, however, be contacted in October to ensure they are committing to re-enrolling.
If there are open spots in the Winter/Spring 2019 Advanced Teen Company class, we will announce for those eligible to interview/audition, in November 2018.
Please note: You must have completed one Fall or Spring semester of Teen Company before being considered for Advanced Teen Company.
