Kennedy and Lily Jasper are seniors at MLCHS who have competed in National Singing competitions. Ms. Huling is their teacher.

Terry and Sandy Gabhart are community members who stepped in to help. Nate Jebsen, the principal, even makes a cameo appearance at the end. The show “Little Women” is a timeless, captivating story that is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love. It is based on the Louisa May Alcott story set in the Civil War and the messages about family, love, acceptance, loss, and motivation still ring true in our hearts today.
