The TheatreWorks production of “Little Women” is slated to run through Jan. 4 at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto.

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s beloved book, the musical debuted on Broadway in 2005.

Set in mid-1800s New England, the story centers on the four precocious March sisters – feisty aspiring writer Jo, traditional Meg, soft-spoken Beth and vivacious Amy – on their exuberant journey of personal discovery, romance, heartbreak and enduring sisterhood.

The cast includes Elizabeth Ward (as mother Marmee), Emily Koch (Jo), Sharon Rietkerk (Meg), Julia Belanoff (Beth) and Palo Alto native Arielle Fishman (Amy). Robert Kelley, founding artistic director of TheatreWorks, directs the play.

Shows are scheduled 2 and 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday, 8 p.m. Jan. 2 and 2 and 8 p.m. Jan. 3 and 4.

The theater is at 1305 Middlefield Road.
