The play begins that memorable Christmas when Marmee leaves to visit her sick husband and Jo sells her beautiful hair to help finance the trip. It ends just a year later when the happy family is again preparing to celebrate not only Christmas but also the return of Mr. March. In between these two events, we again live, laugh, love and cry with Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth as they go through the many trials and tribulations that have made this story a classic.

COVID-19 Protocols: Because our actors will be performing indoors and in close proximity, we are requiring that each actor is vaccinated against COVID-19 before the first rehearsal on January 15th. They will also be required to wear masks during rehearsals at all times and wear face shields during performances, both onstage and off. Cast members will be required to be tested 1x a week, as well as temperature checked at the start of each rehearsal. (Free test kits are presently available through Fountain Hills Library or free testing is available through the school.) The audience will be required to be masked while indoors at all times as well. The safety of our young performers and our community is our number-one priority, and we greatly appreciate your understanding. Proof of vaccination will be required to be presented at auditions.
