About the Production

“A new musical lovingly based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s timeless classic with its unforgettable characters, Anne of Green Gables brings the comical adventures of spunky red-headed orphan Anne Shirley to life, as she wins over her new family and the rest of Prince Edward Island with her spirit and imagination in this heartwarming story about love, family, and home.” TRW website
