The talented cast of the Leicester Theatre Group's (LTG) youth theatre will bring the classic story of Little Women to the Augustine Theatre's stage this April.


The group has a track record of producing professional-level shows, with many performers going on to perform nationally.


Alumni includes several students who are currently in West End roles in Six, Heathers, and Frozen.


LTG has been offering theatre training and auditions to young people aged eight to 18 for 10 years. Their take on Little Women: The Musical will be their 35th show performed by teens and young people.


Little Women: The Musical embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit.


Based on Louisa May Alcott's life and classic novel, Little Women follows the stories of the March sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy.


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.


This glorious musical is filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.

Produced nationally and internationally, this adaptation by Allan Knee, Jason Howland and Mindi Dickinson has received critical acclaim for its ambition and stunning music.


The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
