Broadway star and legendary entertainer Donna McKechnie will return to TheatreZone in Naples, cast as Marmee in Little Women: The Broadway Musical. Joining McKechnie in the production will be Megan Yelaney, Molly Ann Ross, Megan Jimenez and Julie Woods-Robinson as Jo, Amy, Meg, and Beth respectively.
Mothers and daughters have been bonding over Little Women since the novel since it was first published in 1868. The timeless tale about the power of family, friendship and romance are as relevant today as when they were written. The story of the March women's tribulations in New England while their men folk are away fighting in the American Civil War has been the subject of no less than 17 screen adaptations, an opera, and a musical by Allan Knee, Jason Howland and Mindi Dickstein.
In 2005, non-profit TheatreZone was born on two concepts: an affinity and nostalgia for the stage, and for the intimacy of live audiences. Co-founders artistic director Mark Danni and his wife, actress/choreographer Karen Molnar shared a vision and a passion to bring Equity professional actors, and produce talented and innovative productions of classic "lost treasures of Broadway" to Southwest Florida.
Upcoming Season 7 productions include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Dec. 1-11, 2011); Company (Jan. 5-15, 2012); Little Women (March 8-18, 2012) and The Boyfriend (May 3-13, 2012).
Season tickets (four shows) range from $172 - $192 and individual seats costs $43 - $48 plus a $2 per ticket fee. A mini series (3 shows) and group rates are also available.
