Characters: Jo, Meg, Beth, Amy, Marmee, Aunt March, Hannah, Aunt Carroll, Sally Moffatt

Spaces in Class: 8

If there are NOT 8 upper level high school students interested, 3 of the spaces (which will be the designated smaller roles) may be filled by anyone age 12+. Siblings will receive these spaces first if desired. Rate for taking a smaller part is reduced to typical teen registration vs. upper high school class.
