SL_Little Women logoLITTLE WOMEN the Musical
Stage Left
Nov. 4-6
Wilks Theatre -ASC [Oxford | Online]

Directed by Kit Gladieux
Vocal direction by Sydney Scepkowski
Pit Orchestra direction by Harrison Frisk
Choreographed by Dianna Lanaghan

Cast: Bethany Brown as Jo March, Maura Kesterson as Beth March, Becca Borton as Meg March, Emily Schafer as Amy March, Caitlin Zook as Marmee March, Mary Kreidler as Aunt March, Nathaniel Ivy as Laurie Laurence, David Amsden-Michel as Mr. Laurence, John Brooks as John Brooke & Andrew Jackson as Professor Bhaer

Louisa May Alcott’s beloved March sisters are brought to vivid musical life in Little Women. Amid the Civil War, the March sisters – Meg, the romantic oldest, the spirited and tomboyish Jo, sweet and loving Beth, and irascible, playful Amy-live in Concord, Massachusetts with their Marmee while their father is on the battlefield. Filled with adventure (both lived and imagined), heartbreak, and a deep sense of hope, as these “Little Women” struggle to find their own voices.  With beautiful music, memorable characters, and a big-hearted message, Little Women reminds us that “sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true.” Free, donations accepted.

FIRST DATE Runs April 26-28

Stage Left
April 26-28
Miami University Wilks Theater [Oxford]

Cast: Chris LaMendola as Aaron, Paige Galberg as Casey, Emily Olson as Woman 1, Micki Smolenski as Woman 2, Jake O’Brien as Man 1, Thomas Gillotti as Man 2 & Al Oliver III as Man 3

When tightly wound Aaron is set up with cool girl Casey, a quick drink turns into a hilarious dinner served with sides of Google background checks, fake emergency phone calls, a slew of bad boy and uptown girl exes, and some seriously saucy chemistry. Can this mismatched pair turn what could be a dining disaster into something special before the check arrives, or end up at another table for one?

Have you ever felt a little blue? Well this Man in Chair has the perfect remedy… An old 1920s musical! THE DROWSY CHAPERONE comes to life in this Man’s small, studio apartment.
