  • On this week’s episode of Out and About, Alison Meuth joins Jenn Gordon to talk about Peoria Players' production of “Little Women – The Musical”. The Civil War is in full swing, and the March sisters live in Concord, Massachusetts with their Marmee while their father is on the battlefield. Filled with adventure (both lived and imagined), heartbreak, and a deep sense of hope, the struggle of these “Little Women” to find their own voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America. With buoyant, joyful melodies, memorable characters, and a big-hearted message, Little Women reminds us that “sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true.” The show is directed by Peggy Breaux Hupp and runs from Sept 10 – 12 and Sept 15 – 19 at Peoria Players Theatre.
