“The family is forever in this special radio version of Little Women, our fourth JudsonRADIO track. It’s a holiday treat from JTC and Muirfield Broadcasting for listeners in the Sandhills area, ”said Judson Theater Company artistic director Daniel Haley, who also directed the show.
Set during the Civil War, this dramatization of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved novel tells the story of the March family: we meet the serious Meg, the pretentious Amy, the sweet Beth and the brave Jo. She is determined to be a professional writer despite the expectations of the times for a woman’s place in the world, and ignores that the elusive muse she seeks is the life she shares with her sisters and mother. , Marmee. With irresistible warmth, Little Women tells of their joy and sorrow through the holidays and the highlights of their lives. This timeless tale has been adapted several times for television and film.
The ten-actor cast includes professional actors who have recorded their roles across the country, many of whom have appeared on the JTC stage. The March sisters are played by Ashley Brooke (Meg), Melody Ladd (Jo), Renée Elizabeth Turner (Beth) and Julia Golden (Amy). The roles of Marmee and Aunt March are played by JTC veterans Kelly Hackett and Maddie Casto respectively. The Sisters in Law are played by Danny Adams (Laurie), Kyle Stocker (Mr. Brooke) and Cody Davis (Professor Bhaer). Mr. Laurence is played by JTC favorite Rick McDermott.
“It’s becoming a holiday tradition,” enthused JTC executive producer Morgan Sills. “It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed since our first radio play, Miracle on 34th Street. Much of Little Women takes place over the holidays, we knew it would be the perfect choice for this year.
“As with our other radio pieces, we rely on our sound engineer Damien Figueras to supervise and coordinate the recording and add music and sound effects. Haley continued. “These shows are free to listen to, but they are not free to create.
