When “Little Women,” the stage adaptation of the classic Louisa May Alcott novel, opens in Laguna Beach next weekend, it’ll be presented by actual little women (and men).
The show is a project of the Generation GAP, the self-producing teen theater company under the auspices of Gallimaufry Performing Arts. The acronym GAP stands for Gallimaufry Arts Project and the performers range in age from 12 to 18.
This production won’t be staged in a large theater, but rather in Bridge Hall of Laguna’s Neighborhood Congregational Church, 340 St. Ann’s Drive. And it’ll be presented in the round, with limited seating available. Most playgoers are familiar with the story in one form or another — the novel, its movie adaptations or the musical theater version, which will be offered in Laguna.
