Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre is pleased to announce its production of Little Womenopening February 13, 2020, and running through March 1.  This play, which will be directed by Patrick McDonald, is adapted by Scott Davidson from Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel and produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Services, Inc.  

Auditions will be held at the Prattville Cultural Arts Building at 203 West 4thStreet on Sunday, October 20, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. and Monday, October 21, from 6:30-9:00 p.m., with callbacks Tuesday, October 22, from 6:30-9:00 p.m.

Director McDonald will be looking for actors as follows:

  • 7 - 8 females to play teenage roles (approximately 12 – 25 years of age)
  • 4 - 5 females to play adult roles (approximately 30 – 70+ years of age)
  • 2 males to play older teenage/young adult roles (approximately 16 – 25 years of age)
  • 1 male to play adult role (approximately 40 – 60 years of age)

Actors will be asked to do cold-readings from scripts which will be provided. Actors should be prepared to read dramatically, perhaps as someone who is older or younger than their true age, and to demonstrate minor additional talents, such as playing piano and whistling, but proficiency is not required for these additional talents. 

Based on the cherished novel by Louisa May Alcott, Little Womenis the story of the March family at the time of the American Civil War. This stage adaptation by Scott Davidson encompasses five years in the lives of this family, particularly the four daughters, as they journey from childhood to adulthood. Like all such journeys, there are family and companions, festivities and trials, warmth and rivalry, learning and uncertainty, serendipity and loss. This timeless message will teach us all to cherish the journey even when we aren’t sure of the destination.
