Want to be part of LATTE’s upcoming production? While we are staying virtual right now, we still have our eye on the goal… to perform Little Women next summer/when it is safe. Our returning teens have led the charge and been part of this planning process. At their request, I have written a new stage version of the book, honoring the original work, yet touching on relevant social themes and adapted for a new generation! The Little Women Production program will span through the fall 2020 and spring/summer 2021 calendar.
For the spring session, Little Women production meetings are planned for 7:30pm-8:30pm Wednesdays, but the schedule is subject to updating.
The Little Women Production is a separate and distinct endeavor running parallel to the Expresso Yourself program. Little Women Production members are encouraged to join their LATTE friends having a great time by registering for the LATTE Expresso Yourself Program !
