We would love for you to be a part of an upcoming show at BLT! We welcome seasoned actors to first-timers. While we cannot guarantee everyone a role in every show, we can guarantee you a fair shot. Casting for shows is handled by a non-biased audition panel that consists of the Director of the show, along with 2-3 additional volunteers that are approved by the Board of Directors.

What roles are available in this show?
Roles: 7 Female, 4 Male teenage and adult roles
The protagonist of the novel, and the second-oldest March sister. Jo, who wants to be a writer, is based on Louisa May Alcott herself, which makes the story semi-autobiographical. Jo has a temper and a quick tongue, although she works hard to control both. She is a tomboy, and reacts with impatience to the many limitations placed on women and girls. She hates romance in her real life, and wants nothing more than to hold her family together.
The oldest March sister. Responsible and kind, Meg mothers her younger sisters. She has a small weakness for luxury and leisure, but the greater part of her is gentle, loving, and morally vigorous.
The third March daughter. Beth is very quiet and very virtuous, and she does nothing but try to please others. She adores music and plays the piano very well.
The youngest March girl. Amy is an artist who adores visual beauty and has a weakness for pretty possessions. She is given to pouting, fits of temper, and vanity; but she does attempt to improve herself.
The rich boy who lives next door to the Marches. Laurie, whose real name is Theodore Laurence, becomes like a son and brother to the Marches. He is charming, clever, and has a good heart.
The March girls’ mother. Marmee is the moral role model for her girls. She counsels them through all of their problems and works hard but happily while her husband is at war.
The March girls’ father and Marmee’s husband. He serves in the Union army as a chaplain.
