PLEASE NOTE: This show is being carefully produced with videographers in controlled spaces and conditions and all activities are completed in coordination with school and local health officials. Strict distancing guidelines, use of PPE and other safety measures are in place throughout rehearsals and filming. Because this show is filmed, there are controlled situations where masks are not being utilized. Zoom lenses, multiple camera angles, distancing and other safety precautions are in place to allow us to tell this story in a safe environment. Please know that while camera angles and video production can be deceiving at times, this show was designed around the safety guidelines currently in place and is performed in a manner that puts the safety of our cast, crew, pit and technical talent first. 

The Maloney High School Department of Music & Theatre is currently producing the Broadway show "Little Women." The COVID-19 Pandemic has forced many changes in the world and the theater arts have been significantly impacted across the world. While live theater is not a reality at this time, we are creating unique opportunities for our students in order to keep the arts alive. We have remained dedicated to our theater arts at Maloney High School and are complying with all of the most current safety guidelines. For these reasons, Little Women will be produced in a very different format than a normal production. 

Little Women is being produced in a socially distant format with appropriate PPE, a closed house and in compliance with the most current local, and state arts safety recommendations. There is no live audience invited to this show and our support teams have been kept to minimum staffing. Pit musicians are playing at significant distance and are performing through in-ear monitors (headphones). Much of the normal stage movement and interaction will be limited in order to keep our students safe. Our show is being developed as a cinema film. We are recording our show (through special licensing with MTI Shows International) and developing a full scale film of our show for public viewing. Filling allows us more flexibility to produce scenes, much more opportunity to distance our artists and an opportunity to produce a show that would otherwise be unrealistic during COVID-19. We are currently planning our filming through December 12th with a video release on December 18th at 6:00pm
