ARENA Arts presents

"Little Women"

Adapted for the stage from the classic novel by Peter Clapham
Written by Louisa May Alcott
Directed by Christine Ellis

 

Little Women is the first book, which spans from one Christmas to the next in Victorian times. A timeless classic.

The story of Little Women, Louisa M. Alcott's famous novel, is so well known and so well loved that it is hardly surprising that many attempts have been made to portray its characters upon the stage. None has yet been so successful, however, as this brilliant dramatization by Peter Clapham.

The structure of the play faithfully covers that of the novel, interweaving the lives of the March girls, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, and Laurie, the boy next door, as they grow up happily together - whilst battling poverty and awaiting the news of the fate of their father who is fighting the Civil War.

All the overtones of gaiety and the undertones of sadness are here, bringing the story completely to life in a way which is both accurate and dramatically satisfying.

Sense of something special in Little Women stage adaptation

A TIMELESS classic will be lifted from the page to the stage this November.

Adapted by Peter Clapham from Louisa May Alcott’s famous novel, Little Women is being presented by ARENAarts and directed by Christine Ellis at the Roxy Lane Theatre.

The story follows the lives of the four March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – as they grow up happily together while battling poverty and wait for news of their father in the American Civil War.

Loosely based on the author and her three sisters as they passed from childhood into womanhood, the stage version keeps close to the original storyline.

“It’s a delightful family classic highlighting the strength and enduring quality of four lovely young women and their family and friends,” Ellis said.

“My main challenge is squeezing the cast of 11 on stage at the same time, along with furniture and a piano.

“The actors are also playing live music on stage during the show.”

Acting for more than 45 years and directing for 30, Ellis has worked with the Old Mill, Stirling and KADS Theatres and ARENAarts, where she is currently artistic director.

She has won numerous awards over the years at the Hills Festival of Theatre, Youthfest, Mandurah One-Act Play Festival and Blak Yak Theatre’s 24-hour stage project.

Most recently, Ellis directed Bitten which was named best youth comedy at the Hills Festival of Theatre and also scored several acting awards.

“I have directed Little Women once before and thought it would be a lovely show to bring to the Roxy Lane Theatre to give the audience a real taste of culture and entertainment,” she said.

“I have worked with young actors for more than 20 years and know the strength of talent we have in Perth at the moment, so I wanted to showcase this in an end-of-year show.”

Featuring:
Steph Hickey, Annabel Eirth, Evie Madeleine, Bella Freeman, Jenny Smith, Sally Boteler, Julie Holmshaw, Blake Hughes, Justin Markham, Peter Giles and Paul Anderson.

Harbour Theatre presents

The Ghost Train

a comedy thriller by Arnold Ridley
Directed by Ann Speicher

 

Dubbed as one of the world's scariest plays, Harbour Theatre will present the thrilling murder mystery The Ghost Train for their final season for 2019. The Ghost Train tells the tale of a group of hapless passengers stranded for the night in a remote and haunted Cornish railway station in 1920s England.

Written in 1923 by Arnold Ridley (famous for playing the doddery Godfrey in Dad's Army) The Ghost Train is regarded as a modern minor classic.

It established the 20th century dramatic genre of "strangers stranded together in a railway scenario in contrained circumstances" thrillers, leading tot he films "The Lady Vanishes" (1938) and "Night Train to Munich" (1940).

The plot revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated Cornish railway station in the evening. The station master tries to persuade them to leave the site as he is closing the station for the night. They refuse to leave, citing the lack of alternative accommodation for several miles around. He warns them of the supernatural danger of a spectral old railway carriage train, the ghost of one that fatally wrecked in the locality several years before, that sometimes haunts the line at night, bringing death to all who set eyes upon it. Incrediulous of his story, they still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a night at the station.
