Anne of Green Gables
August 30- October 13th
The world-famous novel Anne of Green Gables comes vibrantly to life as a modern classic musical. The story of an orphan just looking for a place to belong, and maybe find a kindred spirit along the way, becomes a timeless love story once she meets the handsome Gilbert Blythe. Ultimately accepted into the home of the plainspoken Matthew and his spinster sister, Mirilla, the high-spirited Anne changes the lives of all she encounters on the way to evolving into a learned young woman. With beautiful tunes like “Around the Bend”, “A Kettle of Fish”, and “Making Up For Lost Time” Anne of Green Gables joins the pantheon of great American musicals
Transformations, like the crawling caterpiller becomes a graceful butterfly, happen before audience’s eyes in all seven main stage musicals and comedy. From “Life Could Be A Dream” to “Beauty And The Beast” the season highlights how the human spirit can evolve, improve or reconcile. “Life Could Be a Dream” follows a group of young boys who become singing stars; Papa Yoder, the patriarch of “Plain and Fancy”, in its 33rd season admits that “we grow too soon old and too late schmart”, “Freaky Friday” is brought to stage to show a mother and daughter learn to appreciate each other, Mark Twain’s Huck Finn learns along the “Big River” to love and accept all people, “Anne Of Green Gables” grows into a studious young woman and changes those around her and “The Sunshine Boys” rekindle their long broken friendship. The Holiday show, the long awaited revival of “Beauty And The Beast,” is the ultimate transformation that love can bring.
