Anne of Green Gables - The Musical

Anne of Green Gables - The Musical

by  Norman Campbell, Donald Harron, L.M. Montgomery

Full Length Musical

Based on L.M Montgomery's timeless classic, Anne of Green Gables - The MusicalTM follows the rise of Anne Shirley, a feisty, red-haired orphan who arrives unexpectedly in the small community of Avonlea to the Cuthburts, who were expecting a boy to help on their farm, Green Gables. 

The story follows the precocious and imaginative Anne as she captures the hearts and minds of the small farming community - and her new-found family - simply by the virtue of her own pluck and personality. This original, glorious adaptation - now firmly embedded in Canadian national culture and musical theatre canon - continues to enrapture audiences across the world with its rich score and a rare, affecting story for all ages.
