SALISBURY — Piedmont Players Theatre is presenting a production of “Little Women” starting Friday, Nov. 18, at the Norvell Theatre, 135 E. Fisher St.

The play is an adaption by Marisha Chamberlain and based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott.

Directed by Jennifer Hubbard, a former high school teacher who is now a young adult novelist, she said the reason she applied for the job is that the novel was one of the biggest reasons she decided to become a writer herself.

“It’s just one of those books that’s a touchstone for a lot of people,” Hubbard said.

Hubbard, a native of Salisbury, also grew up acting in Piedmont Player productions. She directed the play with the help of her stage manager, Connie Senkowski. Producing partners are Edward and Susan Norvell.
