Theatre at the Center's 2010 - 2011 Theatre for Young Audiences is pleased to continue their season with the theatrical performance of the family classic Anne of Green Gables, the classic tale of a young orphan girl whose dauntless spirit transforms her adoptive family. Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's internationally beloved novel, this original musical delights young audiences with its celebration of the power of imagination and the importance of love and trust.
Anne of Green Gables tells the poignant and funny story of a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley and her journey to find the family she always dreamed of. Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, farmers who live on Prince Edward Island in Canada, planned on adopting a boy to help with the chores. Upon their arrival to pick up their child, they are not expecting to see Anne, with little more than a tattered carpet bag and a big imagination. With her fiery temper, love of melodrama and romance, and tendency for mishap, Anne brings laughter and happiness to the home she has longed for all of her life.
