Set in England in during the Civil War, the musical follows a woman along with her mother and three sisters as they work to survive without the patriarch of the family. As some of the characters conform to the submissive attitudes of women during that time, Jo March chases independence and moves to New York City to become a writer. When tragedy strikes her family, Jo March must fight against adversity to achieve her dreams. The musical is inspired by “Little Women” and the works of Louisa May Alcot.

Poquoson Island Players was created to provide affordable entertainment for theatre lovers on the Virginia Peninsula. The theatre company holds residency at the TNCC auditorium and produces three shows annually, including musicals, comedies and dramas.
