Step back in time as the St. Francis DeSales Drama Department presents the classic story "Little Women." The play chronicles the life-changing events of the March family during a turbulent period of American History. Their joys, sorrows, loves and losses are played against the backdrop of a divided country mourning the loss of an assassinated president and struggling to stay united. Through it all, the sisters endure with a healthy dose of faith and the March family's legendary sense of humor. All of the most familiar episodes from the beloved novel by Louisa May Alcott are included in the play, along with some less familiar stories. Playing the part of the March sisters are sophomore Chloe Myers as Meg, senior Cella Minadeo as the tomboy and writer Jo, the role of Beth is being split this year by sophomores Frankie Bonte and Grace Brunton, and the youngest sister Amy is being shared by freshmen Mia Slonac and Mary Polemeni-McGovern. Marmee, the matriarch of the March family is played by sophomore Brianna Stokes, and the firm handed Aunt March is portrayed by senior Sydney Hord. The cast rounds out with juniors Isaac Steiger as Laurie and Jackson Moulder as Professor Bhaer, and sophomores Natalie Allton as Hannah, the Irish housekeeper, and Cristofer Tapia as John Booke. The show will take place Saturday, October 28 at 7pm and Sunday, October 29 at 3pm in the SFD Little Theater. Tickets
