GREENVILLE, S.C. (November 8, 2016) – Bob Jones University presents Little Women: The Broadway Musical, in Rodeheaver Auditorium Thursday and Friday, Nov. 17-18, at 8 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 19, at 2.p.m. Directed by Dr. Darren Lawson, dean of the School of Fine Arts and Communication at BJU, this production will be the university’s first ever full-scale musical and will feature three guest artists in the major roles of the production.
The story of Little Women follows the timeless saga of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March as they grow up during the Civil War. With music and lyrics by Jason Howland and Mindi Dickstein, this production has touched audiences of all ages around the world. Spectators will enjoy a captivating story based on Louisa May Alcott’s own life, and will watch as the March sisters—through joy, sorrow, change and hope—charm their way into their hearts.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this inaugural musical production in our Concert, Opera, & Drama series,” says Lawson. “The story and music are extremely accessible and offer the audience an unforgettable glance into the lives of the four March sisters. Don’t miss this fast-paced and energetic production!”
The guest artists for this production include Caitlin Mesiano as Jo and Patrick Dunn as Laurie, two new performers to Rodeheaver stage. Angela Horn-Barrett will be returning for her third production at BJU and will play the role of Marmee.
The 23-member cast also includes BJU faculty, staff, and students. The production features a 21-person orchestra under the direction of Maestro Michael Moore, head of the Department of Music Education at BJU.
