Casting has been announced for Little Women The Musical at London’s Park Theatre from November.
Based on the critically acclaimed 1868 novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott, the piece will run for a limited season from 11 November to 19 December.
Ryan Bennett will play Professor Bhaer, Hana Ichijo will play Meg, Sev Keoshgerian will play Laurie, Anastasia Martin will play Beth, Mary Moore will play Amy, Bernadine Pritchett will play Aunt March and Brian Protheroe will play Mr Lawrence.
Lejaun Sheppard will play John Brooke, Savannah Stevenson will play Marmee and Lydia White will play Jo. Completing the company is Liv Andrusier.
Little Women has a book by stage and screen writer Allan Knee, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein, and music by Jason Howland.
Little Women follows the adventures of the four March sisters – Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy. Jo, the second eldest of the March daughters and an aspiring writer, receives yet another rejection from a publisher.
Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells Jo she can do better by making her stories more personal. Begrudgingly, Jo weaves the story of how she and her sisters grew up in Civil War America – a tale of self-discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
Tickets are available to book online now from parktheatre.co.uk.
