"Little Women" loved by the audience at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts
The audience loved the tale of Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth—the “Little Women” in the Grand Marais Playhouse production which debuted Thursday, April 19 at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts.
New for the 2012 season, the Grand Marais Playhouse is adding a new Food Shelf Friday performance. On the First Friday performance of each Playhouse production, audience members can receive a buy one get one free ticket at the box office by bringing a bag of groceries (containing five items or more) of useable food shelf items to the performance or making a donation of $10 or more to the food shelf at the box office.
The cast of nine for Little Women includes a mother/daughter/ granddaughter trio that makes this production a even more special. Janet Healy (Aunt March), her daughter Amy Henrikson (Marmee) and her granddaughter Linnea Henrikson (Amy) perform together in this wonderful story about family. The rest of the cast includes Mara MacDonnell (Jo), Cailin Carpenter (Meg), Sarah Larsen (Beth), Diane Stoddard (Hannah), Adrianna Berglund (Sally Mae), and Yvonne Block (Aunt Carol).
High School Senior Maria Nickolay directs this production. It is the first student-directed production in many years for the Playhouse. Assisting Maria as stage manager is Brenna Hay and Emma Bradley leads the costuming crew, creating the look of the Civil War era.
"Little Women" runs April 26 – 29, Thursday – Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. Tickets are $10 adults and $5 students 18 and under.
