Lincoln High School will be performing the classic tale, Little Woman as their musical this year.
According to Laura Adam, the Musical Director, the musical will showcase the talent of the students who have dedicated a lot of time and energy to their roles.
“We start a workshop in June with 3-4 different shows and choose the one that best suits the students. We chose Little Woman because they all seem to enjoy the relatabilty of the characters despite the Civil War setting. The characters in the musical are relatable, timeless and experience things people still go through today.”
All of the stage props were made by volunteers and all of the costumes were handmade for each character.
The play will be premiering at Lincoln High School on November 10 starting at 7p.m.
