    Hi ladies,

    Mahwah High School Drama is presenting the musical "Little Women" this March.  This show is based on the beloved books written by Louisa May Alcott and tells the story of four sisters during the Civil War. The lead character is Jo March, an independent and resourceful young woman who is unwilling to be confined by the social guidelines of her time. 

    It is a delightful show with great music and a cast that includes a dozen younger children as well as the high school students.  The regular performances are Thursday March 21st through Saturday March 23rd at 7:00PM, plus a Sunday March 24th matinee at 2:00PM.  There is also a FREE Senior Citizens performance on Wednesday March 20th at 4:00PM.

    To help provide children with a friendly and welcoming introduction to theater, MHS Drama is presenting a Gala Event in coordination with a special Children's matinee on Saturday March 23rd.  The Gala Event begins at 1:00 in the Mahwah High School cafeteria, continues with the 2:00 performance, and concludes with a tour of the theater after the show finishing about 4:00.  So, while it may be tight for Juniors and older attending the Powder Puff derby, younger girls could easily do both.

    During the Gala, children will mingle with the cast, decorate a sword and take part in a sword-fighting lesson. They will play some games played by children in the 1860s, and enjoy some Civil War era treats and snacks. Then they'll see the show, before finishing with the Director's tour. They'll take home a souvenir fun patch and their decorated sword.  
    The cost, including the show, is $20 per child and $10 per adult.

    The flyer is attached.

    Everyone had a fabulous time at last year's "A Tale of Cinderella" Gala and I'm sure this year will be just as much fun!

    I hope you can join us!
