When a high-spirited, red-headed orphan girl is sent to live with the Cuthberts at Green Gables, they claim a mistake has been made since they had asked for a boy. But before Marilla and her quiet brother Matthew can send her back to the orphanage, Anne’s winsome ways capture their hearts, and her winning personality and funny antics captivate all who come to know her.
Both players and audiences alike will enjoy this beautiful adaptation of Anne’s adventures from childhood to maturity. The large cast gives many students the opportunity to perform in a lively and charming adaptation of this classic favorite. The large role of Anne can even be split into the ’younger’ and the ’older’ Anne to make the role more manageable, expand the cast, and give another young actress a chance to shine.
