Engage with “Little Women”

Comment are off

Circle Theatre Company is excited to share two resources to enhance your performance experience.

CTC_LW_Poster_11x17_Rev00The cast and crew of Circle Theatre Company’s Little Women wants to invite our audience to dig deeper into this literary classic. We are offering a Study Guide to Little Women.  This thirty-one page Study Guide includes production information, synopsis, author’s background, themes, historical context, writing prompts, pre-show and post-show activities, vocabulary, and suggested reading lists.  The Study Guide is free and can be downloaded here.

In addition to our regular talk back held after Saturday’s matinee performance, we are adding a second talk back after the opening performance on Friday, February 12th. The opening performance talk back will be focused on character relationships and the theme of the play. The actors will answer questions posed by a moderator who will engage the actors and audience to delve deeper into the work that has been presented from a Christian worldview.

When our actors were asked what they wanted the audience to take away from the show, the words from the book written directly by Louisa May Alcott herself resonated with us all…

“If I don’t seem to need help, it is because I have a better friend, even than Father, to comfort and sustain me. My child, the troubles and temptations of your life are beginning and may be many, but you can overcome and outlive them all if you learn to feel the strength and tenderness of your Heavenly Father as you do that of your earthly one. The more you love and trust Him, the nearer you will feel to Him, and the less you will depend on human power and wisdom. His love and care never tire or change, can never be taken from you, but may become the source of lifelong peace, happiness, and strength. Believe this heartily, and go to God with all your little cares, and hopes, and sins, and sorrows, as freely and confidingly as you come to your mother.” ~ Marmee (Little Women)

We want you to share in the troubles and triumphs of the March family; maybe even identifying with the burdens each of the girls carry, knowing that our Heavenly Father deeply wishes us to cast our hopes, dreams, and cares upon Him. He loves us. He really does.
