The Rocky Point High School Pocket Theater production was another success for the talented students who took the stage on April 21 and 22 for two performances of “Little Women,” a play based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel.
The timeless story features the four March sisters; tempestuous Jo, motherly Meg, shy Beth, and spoiled baby Amy, who under the guidance of their beloved mother, struggle to keep their family going while their father is away in the Civil War. In this dramatized adaptation of the classic coming-of-age story, even as illness and sibling rivalry cast their shadows, each girl strives to find her true self.
The talented cast featured seniors Jordan Chirivas, Natalie Kelly, Robin Metz, Adam Olszewski and Sarah Zarzycki in key roles with students Maya Alexander, Derek Bergmann, Sebastian Garske, Samantha Palmese, Katie Romano and Jennifer Sandusky rounding out the cast.
Students Adreanna Weiss and Sarah Fabricatore introduced the show. Student directors were Maya MacCarthy and Robin Metz; art director was Natalie Kelly; tech director was Toby Massar; music director was Olivia Carley; understudies were Olivia Carley, Serena Carley, Darren Castellucci, Angelina DeRosa and Laurisa Roalef.
“It is a bittersweet moment as ‘Little Women’ was the last theater production of the year,” director and producer Mrs. Jaimie Mancini said. “Nevertheless, I am beyond proud of our cast and crew for their talent and dedication to our program, especially our seniors who will be greatly missed!”
