Anne of Green Gables
March 8, 9, 11, 18, 15 and 16* AT 7:30PM (Matinees at 1pm
Don’t miss the family friendly presentation of Anne of Green Gables at Old Town Actors Studio, 427 N. Main, March 8, 9, 11, 15, and 16, 2019. Anne of Green Gables was written by Canadian author L. M. Montgomery and has been considered a classic children's novel since the mid-twentieth century. Set in the late 19th century, the novel recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an orphan girl, who is mistakenly sent to two middle-aged siblings; Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert.
The sweet dramatization by Jody Johnston Davidson captures the charm and excitement of L.M. Montgomery's enduring classic, from her first encounter with her austere guardian to her delightful presentation for the school’s benefit concert. The play faithfully recreates many of the memorable events and characters from the novel. We watch the tragedies and triumphs that mark Anne's growth from adolescence to early adulthood: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken wine bottle, and her varied scholastic achievements. 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.
The Old Town Actors Studio’s presentation of Anne of Green Gables features the talents of Ezza Bella Navarro and Madison Thorne as Anne, Allie Evans and Milly Bradley as Diana, Will Nelson and Kevin Wilson as Gilbert, Andrea Evans as Marilla Cuthbert, John Grayson as Mathew Cuthbert, and Melissa Mathews as Racchel Lynde.
