“In a fortnight, I will be in a delightful musical with Maitland Musical Society called Little Women: The Broadway Musical to be held at the historical Maitland Gaol in May/June,” Jenni said.

Little Women is based on Louisa May Alcott’s life and 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 experiences growing up in Civil War America.

Jenni is playing two roles in the performance.

“One as Aunt March and the other as Mrs Kirk the boarding house keeper,” she said.

“Another former local girl, Rachel Davies, is playing the lead as Jo March.”

Jenni and her fellow cast members are looking forward to seeing some faces from Port Stephens in the audience.

As a warm-up, Jenni recently gave a taste of her upcoming performance to the Ladies Probus Club of Port Stephens.

“The Ladies enjoyed an hour of wonderful singing by Jenni,” Jill Stephenson from the Probus Club told News Of The Area,
