Bring the whole family to Gulfshore Playhouse this holiday season for two spirited productions from the theater’s STAR (Student Theatre Artists in Residence) Academy. Student actors participating in the academy’s after-school theater education program will first stage “Little Women” Dec. 10 through 13 followed by a production of “Ebenezer Junior” Dec. 17 through 19, 2020.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s beloved novel, “Little Women” follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. When Jo has no luck selling her stories for publication, her friend Professor Bhaer advises her to do better and write more from her own life. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo tells the story of the March sisters and their experiences growing up in Civil War America. “Little Women” embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit.
“Little Women” was written by Alan Knee with music by Jason Howland and lyrics by Mindi Dickstein. Gulfshore Playhouse’s production will be performed by STAR Academy students ages 13 to 18 and directed by Steven Calakos, Gulfshore Playhouse’s director of education. Evening performances for both productions will take place at 7:30 p.m., with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20. To purchase tickets for either show, visit GulfshorePlayhouse.org.
