Description

Full Length Musical

Stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew hoped to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne by mistake, and their lives will never be the same. Her warmth and wit affects everyone around her - even, eventually, the cold Marilla! We follow Anne through her rebellious years, her transformation into a young woman, and her romantic pairing with Gilbert. This story has been charming audiences around the world.

"What a great experience for my students and the audience. We found the music with its various styles to be challenging and enjoyable. Highlights were: I'm Proud, Puff Sleeves and the charming ballad Summer Day. I would highly recommend this musical to any high school or community group." - David Franceschina, Music Teacher, Frederick County Public Schools, MD

"Anne of Green Gables is a charming new musical with great appeal to both performers and audiences. Lyricist Sylvia Ashby faithfully captures the essence of this beloved novel by L. M. Montgomery and the delightful musical score by composer Mark McCoy masterfully supports and advances the story. Sophisticated folk-like songs connect immediately with the listener. There are ample moments of poignant drama balanced with wonderful touches of humor. The show challenges the musicians yet is very accessible and sustains interest through repeated performances. It provides a fine evening's entertainment; I highly recommend it. Audiences love it." - James E. Pantle, Ph.D., Professor of Music, Shepherd University

"Anne of Green Gables is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a great musical to perform. To date, this has been our preparatory's most successful musical. The community interest in the story generated large houses that raised the most money in the history of our musical theater presentations. Our entire school district came together to present fun filled performances. The young people that were involved in our production loved the music and had fun presenting it. Sylvia Ashby and Mark McCoy have taken a wonderful story and brought it to life with lyrics and music all will enjoy right through to the final curtain call." - Anne N. Munro, Coordinator, Shepherd Preparatory
