HENRY — River Valley Players will present “Little Women” the musical on Oct. 26 and 27, and Nov. 1, 2 and 3 at St. Mary’s Community Center located at 1301 Second St. in Henry.

“Little Women” 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 that are as relevant today as when they were written. This literary classic has been brought to life as an exhilarating musical with glorious music and heart.

“Little Women” embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope, and is the sound of true America finding its voice.

For Saturday performances, doors will open at 6 p.m., with dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. For Sunday performances, doors will open at noon, with dinner beginning at 12:30 p.m.
