Little Women

Chapterhouse Theatre Company are delighted to present Louisa May Alcott’s beloved coming of age story this summer. Meet headstrong Jo March and her sisters Meg, Amy, and Beth. Each sister is determined to pursue her own path in life, but though their dreams may be different, their family ties remain as true as ever. An uplifting and heartfelt tale of the March sisters’ journey into adulthood and all the trials and triumphs that come with it, Little Women features authentic costuming and a beautiful musical score. 


Beauty and the Beast

Featuring a delightful cast of specially crafted puppets, lively original songs and sparkling humour, Chapterhouse Theatre Company’s rollicking new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is perfect for all the family!
