Warren Players has announced the cast of “Little Women,” the third production of its 88th season. Show dates are May 2, 3 and 4 at 7 p.m.; and May 5 at 2 p.m. at the historic Struthers Library Theatre.

A musical adaptation of the classic and beloved novel, “Little Women” brings to life the timeless Civil War story of a mother and her four daughters through their journeys of personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.

The cast of “Little Women” features Nyssa Brumagin as Jo, Adrianne Hunt as Meg, Kelsey Angove as Beth and Megan VanOrd as Amy. Also featured is Kathy Hurst as Marmee, Melissa Carr as Aunt March, Michael Stenberg as John Brooke, Patrick Mulligan as Professor Bhaer, Andrew Stalder as Laurie and Allan Branthoover as Mr. Laurence.

The production is directed by Dixie Brumagin, with production management by Patrick Mulligan and assistant Amanda Wolf, vocal direction by Kevin Hunt and costuming by Charmaine Check.

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. “Little Women” embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit. The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache, and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
