Glen Cove HS Plays “Little Women”

Both performances will begin at 8 p.m. Friday’s show offers dinner and a reduced ticket price with dinner (dining begins at 5p.m. in the GCHS cafeteria). For more information call 801-7600. All proceeds will go towards the high school’s City 2 City fundraiser to aid victims of Superstorm Sandy residing in Long Beach, Glen Cove’s sister city.

This fall’s production is directed by Matthew Rottino, and is based on the play by Marissa Chamberlain, adapted from the original novel by Louisa May Alcott. Under the guidance of their beloved mother, the four young March sisters – tempestuous Jo, motherly Meg, shy Beth, and spoiled baby Amy – struggle to keep their family together while father is away serving in the Civil War. Each girl strives to find her true self through privation, illness, and sibling rivalry in this wonderful adaptation.
