MOUNT IDA, AR – The Montgomery County Council for the Performing Arts (MCCPA) launches their 2022 season with four performances of the play “Little Women”.
Adapted for the stage by Thomas Hischak, the play is based on the coming-of-age novel written by Louisa May Alcott. The story follows the lives of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—and details their passage from childhood to womanhood. Loosely based on the lives of the author and her sisters, it is classified as a semi-autobiographical novel.
Featuring a cast of 22, the play is performed in two acts with an intermission. Concessions are available for purchase during the intermission. The play is supported by over a dozen production staff members and features locally handmade costumes.
The first performance is offered Friday, March 4th at 7:00 pm. Additional performances are available on Sunday, March 6th at 2:00 pm and Saturday, March 12th at 7:00 pm, with the final performance taking place on Monday, March 14th 7:00 pm.
The cost of admission is $8 per person. Tickets are available at the door before each performance. Advance tickets may be purchased from Edwenna at Ouachita Real Estate, 506 Hwy 270 E, Mt Ida, AR 71957.
Founded in 1984, MCCPA first performed “Little Women” in 1995.
The Roosevelt Auditorium is located next to the Mount Ida High School at: 414 Whittington St, Mt Ida, AR 71957.
