Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Little Women - The Musical
Directed by Tiffany Mausser
Character - - Age - - Description
Jo March 18-28
The narrator and emotional core of the story. A tomboy. A writer. A dreamer. Fiercely independent, brave, reckless, strong, ambitious, and hopeful. Not interested in fulfilling expectations or living a conventional life.
Meg March 19-30
The oldest sister. A starry-eyed romantic who dreams of true love and a wholesome, fulfilling family life. Intelligent, modest, thoughtful, a little naïve and unsure of herself.
Beth March 17-27
Sweet, humble, kind, encouraging, selfless, and unfailingly optimistic. A beacon of light in difficult times. The heart and soul of the sisters. Must play “Off to Massachusetts” on piano.
Amy March 16-22
The youngest sister. Brash, immature, tempestuous. Desperate for a life of sophistication and finer things. Matures into a refined, elegant, worldly, if slightly spoiled, young woman with Aunt March’s guidance.
Marmee March 40-65
The matriarch of the March family, raising four spirited daughters alone while her husband is at war. Wise, compassionate, resilient, patient, with a deep inner strength. The glue that holds her family together.
Aunt March 40+
The March girls’ stuffy, formidable, wealthy Aunt who wants to groom them for upward mobility in polite society. Well-intentioned but blunt to a fault. May double with Mrs. Kirk.
Mrs. Kirk 40+
The owner of the boarding house in New York where Jo and Professor Bhaer meet. May double with Aunt March.
Theodore ‘Laurie’ Laurence III 18-28
Mr. Laurence’s grandson. The boy next door. A loyal friend to all the March sisters. Bright, impulsive, enthusiastic, unpretentious, energetic, a little awkward at times. As a boy he falls in love with Jo, but ultimately ends up marrying Amy.
John Brooke 21-35
Laurie’s tutor. Educated, humble, romantic, unassuming, adorably self-effacing. Marries Meg.
Professor Bhaer 30-45
A German academic who befriends Jo in New York and ultimately falls in love with her. A man of strong principles. Educated and intelligent, reserved but with a dry wit.
Mr. Laurence 50+
The stodgy, gruff, intimidating, wealthy neighbor who looks down on the March girls. His unlikely friendship with Beth reveals a soft, kindly old man beneath the facade.
The characters that come to life as Jo narrates her epic tale of thrilling danger, swashbuckling action, and triumphant heroism in “An Operatic Tragedy” and “The Weekly Volcano Press.” These broad character archetypes will give the actors an opportunity to have fun playing with fantasy and melodrama. The actors who play these roles will also understudy one or more of the named characters listed above.
Clarissa (damsel) 18-30
Braxton (villain) 21-45
Rodrigo (hero) 18-35
Rodrigo II (female) 18-30
