‘Little Women’ opens at Clackamas Community College Next Month

Clackamas Community College’s Theatre Department will next month present the witty and charming play Little Women as its winter main stage production.

As fans of the classic coming-of-age story by Louisa May Alcott know, Jo March isn’t your typical Victorian lady. She’s indecorous and headstrong, and one day she’s going to be a great American novelist.

As she and her sisters grow up in the middle of the Civil War, they strive to be brave, intelligent and imaginative young women. But as adulthood approaches, each sister must negotiate her private ambitions with society’s expectations.

In a war-torn world defined by gender, class and personal tragedy, Jo March gives us her greatest story: that of the March sisters, four dreamers destined to be imperfect little women.

Directed by Jayne Stevens, Little Women features a dynamic ensemble of Clackamas Community College students, with scenic and lighting design by Chris Whitten and costumes by Allie Schluchter.

Little Women runs March 2-12, Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30 p.m., in the Niemeyer Osterman Theatre, 19600 Molalla Avenue, Oregon City.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (62+) and $6 for students (free for CCC students). Tickets are discounted by $1 if you purchase online. For reservations, visit www.clackamas.edu/theatre or call 503-594-3153.
