Little Men • A New Musical

Based on “Little Men” the sequel to Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women”

Book, Music and Lyrics by C. Michael Perry

Jo and Professor Baher are set up at Plumfield, with a home and school for boys (and a girl or two). This musical is the story of the arrival at Plumfield of Nat and Dan from Boston. What they add to and how they affect and incite the others of the school becomes the center of the story. This tale of uplifting each other, of second chances, of true human love and compassion will stir the hearts of those watching it and is a tonic for these times of doubt and division.

This Musical is part of the PREMIERE PLAY FILE. See “REHEARSAL MATERIALS” below.
