“Little Women” Takes the Stage

Adapted for the stage by Scott Davidson from Louisa May Alcott’s enduring classic and directed by Chad Hembree, “Little Women” is a heartfelt portrayal of love, family, and personal discovery.

Performances for “Little Women” are scheduled for August 4th, 5th, and 6th. This soft opening serves as a prelude to next weekend’s full start, with two shows that will officially kick off the Spotlight Playhouse’s 20th season.
