In 1932, the 100th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott's birth, The Concord Players began a tradition to honor this esteemed Concord resident and her classic work, Little Women, written at Orchard House. Decennial stage adaptations of the book have continued ever since, with Alcott descendants and Orchard House staff frequently taking leading roles. Over time, The Players have donated one night's performance to Orchard House as further testament to the venerable old house, without which the Alcotts could never have felt rooted enough to succeed.
In 2002, public support -- both by townspeople and the community-at-large -- is more crucial than ever, as we race to "beat the clock" on our massive preservation effort by June 30th. We urge you to consider reserving benefit tickets early, and to encour age your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to attend as well. If you cannot attend but still wish to help, we would greatly appreciate your show of support through a contribution to Orchard House.
