“Little Women,” by Marisha Chamberlain, and based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, tells the warm tale of family and individuality.

The familiar story follows the four young March sisters guided by their mother while their father volunteered to serve as chaplain in the Civil War.

In keeping with the military appreciation theme, the Stained Glass Theatre of Mid-Missouri production adjusted its performance dates to accommodate Missouri National Guardsman Paul Mantle, who plays Theodore Lawrence.

“Little Women” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday this week, and again on March 24-26 and 31. It will also show at 2 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday and on March 26.

Tickets are $7. Call (573) 634-5313 or e-mail to sgtmidmo@earthlink.net for more information.
