The show will go on with King's Players
March 2, 2021
Even during a pandemic, the King’s Players Theatre Company have proven the adage, the show must go on! Their adaptation of Little Women will be performed virtually on March 3-6, 2021 at 7 p.m.
The King’s Players decided to go forward with the production of Little Women virtually, to prioritize the safety and health of all involved.
“The opportunity to perform wasn't limited to people in London, and with that, viewing it is open to anyone who has the time and wants to experience the story,” says Diegra Kambamba, the Director of the play.
The production of Little Women has been pre-recorded, with each actor filming their parts remotely, and will be streamed on a public platform. Kambamba says there were challenges, including “trying to stay motivated considering all that's going on in the world, drawbacks of using ZOOM as our rehearsal platform, and general time constraints, but in the end everything came together.” The videos and music were edited with the help of audio engineers.
Little Women is a musical based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott about four sisters from the March family during the American Civil War. The Director says it is a fitting production to tie in with International Women’s Day in early March.
“I chose Little Women because I am very inspired by the story. It's very heartwarming and centres on young women with unique wants in life. It's so common that musical theatre focuses on the experiences of men, leaving female characters undeveloped. It is also the story of a girl chasing her dreams and believing in herself,” says Kambamba.
