Notes on casting: This is an all-female adaptation/cast. We are interested in seeing women of all body types and ethnicities. It’s highly recommended that you read the novel and are familiar with the story prior to auditioning. The characters are depicted as being in their teens but we are flexible on age. Ideally, actors auditioning for the four sisters should read no older than early 20’s. Amy should read no older than late teens. We are flexible on age for the other women though they should appear to be 40 and up.

Character Descriptions:

  • Meg – The eldest of the sisters. A sweet girl who takes charge when it’s needed.
  • Jo - The second eldest. A tomboy of sorts. Strong willed and stubborn.
  • Beth – The third sister. Nicknamed “Mouse” by her sisters. Timid but strong in nature.
  • Amy – The youngest. She is self-conscious and sometimes self-involved but loves her sisters.
  • Marmee – Their mother. Sweet, firm and would do anything for her family.
  • Aunt March – Firm, yet can be kind when no one is looking. A bit “old school”.
  • Hannah – The housekeeper and nanny. Loving and devoted to the March family through and through.
  • Sallie – The friend that’s not quite the friend you’d like her to be. A bit sassy yet well intentioned.
  • Aunt Caroll – Meek and agreeable – the opposite of Aunt March.
