LEAD – Letting Eager Actors Direct

LEAD – Letting Eager Actors Direct (Grades 8th-12th)

Little Women is set to be our first LEAD production at FAOPA. LEAD is our Letting Eager Actors Direct group. This production will be directed by a student actor under the mentorship of a seasoned director.

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.

Grades 8th and up.
