Milford Drama Performs Little Women

By Erica Snyder

“My mind drifts back to that Christmas Eve so long ago, when nothing in our little home seemed wrong, and nothing in the world outside seemed right.” This quote could be present day or fifty years ago, but it refers to one family living through the Civil War in a classic American novel that has been turned into a play.

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel, Little Women is the story of the four March sisters and their adventures as they come of age in post-Civil War America. Responsible oldest daughter Meg (played by Kate Forehand), tomboy Jo (Madi Dodge), gentle Beth (Katrina Russ), and vain youngest daughter Amy (Megan Rosetti) experience romance, friendship, conflict, illness, and social pressure on their way to discovering their identities as traditional and not-so-traditional women.

Other featured cast members from Milford High School and Milford Central Academy include seniors Natalie Bradley, Jacob Leonard, Dakota Madanat, and Ashley Miller; juniors Shannon Hollingsworth, Rhea Lajeunesse, and Alyson Parola; sophomore Abigail Roxby; freshman Ciera Emich; and eighth-grader Ethan Dehel.

Director Carissa Meiklejohn says, “Little Women is one of my favorite novels and is a story I’ve always wanted to direct. These hardworking students have spent a lot of time developing their characters and doing the classic novel justice.” Whether you have read the novel or are encountering these beloved characters for the first time, this is a story that children and adults can enjoy together.

Performances will be held in the Milford High School Auditorium on Thursday, November 15; Friday, November 16; and Saturday, November 17. All three evening shows will begin at 7:00 p.m. There will also be an afternoon matinee on Saturday, November 17 at 1:00 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door. Adults $7.00; Students and Senior Citizens $5.00.
