Little Women the Musical at Kit Carson Park Amphitheater

Patio Plays in the Park presents…
Little Women the Musical

This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

The showings take place from, August 16-31, 2019 Thursdays-Sundays, 8pm
Kit Carson Amphitheater, 100 Amphitheatre Drive, Escondido, CA 92025

As the resident artist for SIP Wine & Beer, Katherine will be showing some of her recent work while you enjoy the fantastic SIP wine bar selection, great food from Burger Bench and Delight of France and something brew-crafty special from a yet-to-be-named local brewery.

The fundraiser is for a cause close to Katherine’s heart… the North County Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids Backpack Program provides 2,600 elementary school students living in poverty at 52 schools throughout San Diego County with weekend backpacks of nutritious food. These students receive free and reduced-priced meals at school but face hunger at home over the weekend and during school breaks when school meals are unavailable.

Four local artists are creating their art on the actual F4KBP backpacks for a special auction.
Backpack Auction Artists:
Carol Rogers – Local artist and COE of Stone and Glass
Suzanne Nicolaisen – Local artist and board member at the Escondido Art Association
Chrisanne Moats – Local artist and Executive Director of the Escondido Arts Partnership–Municipal Gallery
Alysha Stehly – Crafter and Winemaker for Stehleon Vineyards.

We would love for you to buy tickets for a chance to win your favorite artsy backpack.

All auction proceeds and a percentage of my art sold will go to the Food 4 Kids Backpack program.

Hope to see you there!
Katherine
