Share this timeless and enduring classic about the March sisters’ journey from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War. Audiences of all generations will enjoy acquainting — or reacquainting — themselves with the sisters: Meg, the eldest; Jo, the high-spirited tomboy; Amy, the self-centered beauty; and gentle Beth, as well as their beloved Marmee and Father. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad as they share the joys and pains of growing up, including several monumental milestones. Interlaced with warmth, family loyalty, and traditional values, all these important events provide us with a better understanding of our own lives. Penned by Louisa May Alcott 140 years ago, this much-loved classic tale’s message is still relevant for audiences today.
