The RHS tradition of doing musicals dates back to the inauguration of Visalia High School. It's one of the few programs at the high school level that includes all aspects of the school. Wood Shop, Drafting, Graphic Arts, Stagecraft, Drama, Band, Dance, Choir, English, Business, and so many others departments come together to help put on the show. The school allows all students to audition and participate in the show.
Based on Louisa May Alcott's own family experiences (and novel). The story, turned musical, follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. The beloved story of the March sisters is timeless and deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written. The story is brought to life as an exhilarating new musical filled with glorious music, dancing and heart. "Little Women" embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope -- the sounds of a young America finding its voice. In years to come, we are sure that hundreds of productions by schools and theatres throughout the world will make this stage adaptation of the American classic novel a classic musical theatre treasure in its own right. "Little Women" earned the Tony award in 2005 for best Musical as it is a story driven by music.
