“We are very excited to produce a play!”, says Artistic Director Chandler Davis. “This is a great opportunity for those who don’t consider themselves singers and for those who typically only do musicals to stretch other creative muscles.” This new dramatization captures the charm and excitement of L.M. Montgomery’s enduring classic about an orphan girl, Anne Shirley, from her first encounter with her austere guardian to her thrilling graduation from Queen’s Academy. The play faithfully recreates the memorable events and characters from the brilliant novel. Whether the playgoer is an “old friend” of Anne’s or meeting her for the first time, this play will solidify a lasting friendship between the audience and one of literature’s most unforgettable characters.
