Doreen Montalvo to Play Title Role in Anne of Green Gables: Part II Workshop
Chris Henry's two-part adaptation of the beloved novel will run in repertory at the Royal Family Performing Arts Space.
Complete casting has been announced for the upcoming workshop presentation of Anne of Green Gables: Parts 1 & 2, running in repertory at the Royal Family Performing Arts Space in Times Square January 24-February 11.
As previously announced, Ali Ewoldt (The Phantom of the Opera) will take on the title role in Anne of Green Gables: Part I, and will be joined by dancers Brooke Averi, Nichole Forde, Hannah Hall, Kara Menendez, Stephanie Young, and understudy Juna Shai. Doreen Montalvo (On Your Feet!) will be portraying Anne in Anne of Green Gables: Part II alongside dancers Mindy Lai and Erica Misilo.
Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's beloved novel, this production is adapted and directed by Chris Henry with choreography by Lorna Ventura. The two-part production is described as follows: "Henry's Anne of Green Gables is a one-woman, movement-fueled, theatrical experience for all-ages, featuring dynamic choreography by Lorna Ventura. Part I shares the journey of Anne Shirley; an imaginative, red-headed, hot-tempered, eleven-year-old orphan, and what happens when she is accidentally brought to the home of quiet siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert in Prince Edward Island. Part II continues the journey with Anne as she navigates her new life in Avonlea - by going to school, making new friends, and trying to control her temper."
