The quarter is quickly coming to a close, which means that HOOLIGAN’s production of Little Women is here! The show premieres on Friday, May 28th at 7 PM PST and will have two additional performances on Saturday, May 29th at 12 PM PST and Sunday, May 30th at 7 PM PST. You can get your tickets HERE.
Little Women follows the story of the March sisters as they grow up in Concord, Massachusetts. Josephine (“Jo”) March is an ambitious young author who longs to have her stories published, but struggles to break into the male-dominated publishing industry. Unlike her sisters, Jo is not concerned with pursuing romantic endeavors. Each of the March sisters faces their own struggles, but as they mature and face the conflict of independence versus companionship, they always rely on each other for support. All the while, Laurie--the grandson of their wealthy neighbor-- challenges the girls to venture beyond their comfort zones and develops a lifelong friendship with the family. Accompanied by a beautiful score, Little Women takes us along on the March sisters’ journeys of personal discovery, reminding us of the importance of love, friendship, and staying true to ourselves.
To get excited for the premiere we reached out to some of the cast and crew involved to get you the inside scoop!
What has been your favorite part of this process?
My favorite part of the process has been getting to work with so many new people! It has been really fun getting to collaborate on a show virtually and finding creative ways to interact with each other’s characters. -Katherine McLinden (Professor Bhaer)
Are you excited for the hybrid aspect of this show?
It's been a really interesting process doing the show both live and prerecorded. It's amazing to be in the moment and truly living the story, but it was also fun filming beforehand so we can see some of the finished product before showing it to the world! -Madelyn Erickson (Beth March)
What do you hope the audience takes away from this show?
I hope that the audience will leave this show feeling a sense of humanity for one another –– to not see or treat people based off of their gender or sex, but for their hearts. -Jacqui Kolker (Director)
What has been the most rewarding part of this process?
The most rewarding part of this process has been doing it! This is the first time I have ever directed anything, so I am incredibly proud of myself just for doing it. -Jacqui Kolker (Director)
We hope to see you at one of the three performances this week! Get your tickets HERE.
