In our season finale, ACT! for Youth will be presenting a dramatized version of Louisa M. Alcott's wonderful literary masterpiece, Little Women. Spanning the course of four years, Little Women will follow the March sisters as they grow up through the trials and tribulations of the Civil War. Christopher Ballance, the Arts Council's Performing Arts Director is quite excited to begin the creative journey that will be Little Women. "Little Women is such a great piece to sink your teeth into." Ballance says. "The great thing with these characters being based off of real people is that it makes them so personable, everyone will be able to relate to them." The cast and crew are all so excited already to be a part of this particular project, many of them have read the novel themselves in preparation for the show and are so pleased to be giving the community of Wilson a chance to see these characters come to life. With Ballance building the set and Chris Howell, costumer for Arts Council's summer musical Fiddler on the Roof and co-costumer for The King and I, providing the costume design for this show, ACT! for Youth is set to deliver a stellar season finale. If you are an educator and would like to take your class to see Little Women, a school show will be presented on April 16, contact Christopher Ballance for booking information. Little Women will be transforming the stage of the historic Edna Boykin Cultural Center for the public on April 17, 18, and 19. Tickets for Little Women will go on sale March 2. You can call the Arts Council of Wilson for tickets or visit etix.com to pick up your tickets. Thank you for all your support. See you at the theater.
