Little Women at Oakwell Hall

Chapterhouse Theatre Company’s open air theatre productions at Oakwell Hall in Birstall are a popular part of the historic house’s summer programme. And this year is no exception with tickets selling fast for their outdoor production of ‘Little Women’ on Thursday, 19 July.

Little Women in the garden

The company’s brand new adaptation of the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott will be staged in Oakwell Hall’s walled gardens. It will tell the story of four sisters – Jo, Beth, Meg and Amy – during the American Civil War. It is a tale full of romance, love, passion and friendship and features glorious period costumes and traditional live music.

Come early, bring a picnic!

The performance starts at 7.30pm but the gardens will be open for viewing and picnics from 6.30pm. Audience members are encouraged to bring rugs or low-backed chairs and picnics. Refreshments will be available during the interval from the Friends of Oakwell.

There will be another chance to see this popular theatre group at Oakwell Hall when they present ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ on Wednesday, 15 August.
