Description:

Presented by Christian Community Theater (CCT)

Join us for CCT's Winter production of the literary classic, Little Women. Based on Louisa May Alcott's American classic, this Civil War story of love and family stands the test of time and 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 guarantees 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. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.

AUDITIONS:
Audition sign-ups are now available on the CYT Website through your Family Account!

To audition for Little Women, follow the below steps:
1. Create a Family Account (if you haven't done so already). This can be done by clicking on the head icon in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
2. Once you have logged in to your family account, click on the button that says "Tools" next to your name. A drop down menu will appear and you will need to click on the option that says "Auditions." From there, you'll be able to edit your audition slot. 
3. Auditions on Oct. 5th are open (meaning you will see and hear the performers in your audition time slot, and people are welcome to watch auditions) while auditions on Oct. 7th are closed (meaning you will only be auditioning for the artistic team).
4. Prepare your audition materials! All auditionees will need to prepare a one minute cut of a song and prepare a monologue under one minute. Please DO NOT sing something from the show and make sure that you have a karaoke track. Your music will be faded out a minute after you start to sing. There will be provided monologues posted HERE.
5. You will need to complete your CCT Audition Form here: CCT "Little Women" Audition Form. Your audition form cannot be submitted without the upload of your karaoke track.

Please keep in mind:
- Auditions are only open to individuals ages 19 and up.
- Ages/ranges in descriptions represent the age for the character, not the age of the actor
- All roles will require strong singing and acting skills, plus some simple dance ability. These roles will also require a great deal of memorization and time commitment for the duration of the production.
- Because Little Women is a universal story, it is not a story that we will tell with a particular look for the March sisters. The theater is an imaginative form, not a literal one. The story of the March sisters is one that appeals and applies to all people, and our casting will reflect that truth, with a cast comprised of a diverse group of actors.
- Auditions are open to any individual who would like to audition for the show and agree with CCT’s Code of Conduct and Behavior standards. You can find that document HERE.
There is no compensation for any roles and this is a non-Union production. 
- CYT Covid Policies will apply to CCT, and those policies are subject to change
