Success! All those rebuilt dresses, altered suit jackets, added sashes, replaced buttons, and redesigned hats later, the show was a great success. And, while you're at it, please enjoy the wonderful set built by Joyce and her crew.
The iconic pose of the daughters listening to Marmee read a letter from Mr. March:
Mr. March's Christmas toast, with both our casts:
From left to right: Jo, Meg, John Brooke, Laurie, Jo, Hannah, Beth on the loveseat, Amy, Marmee, Mr. Laurence, and Mr. March.

And about double casting - yes, it gets tricky. Jo, John, Laurie, Hannah, Beth, and Amy were double cast. Our two Jo's had nearly the same measurements in both directions, and could wear the same costumes. And the Hannah dress was forgiving enough to serve both actresses. But for all the other characters, yep, separate costumes. Makes the head spin a bit.
