Anne of Green Gables Preview

03/08/20 03:30PM - 04:30PM

Anne of Green Gables Preview - North Branch

Enjoy a preview of Anne of Green Gables by the Corn Stock for Kids cast.  This adaptation of Anne of Green Gables captures the charm and excitement of L.M. Montgomery’s enduring classic about an orphan girl, Anne Shirley, from her first encounter with her austere guardian to her thrilling graduation from Queen’s Academy.  The play faithfully recreates the memorable events and characters from the brilliant novel.  All the tragedies and triumphs that mark Anne’s growth from adolescence to early adulthood are here: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken wine bottle, the cake disaster, the broken leg, the scholastic achievements, and the saving of Green Gables.  Whether the playgoer is an “old friend” of Anne’s or meeting her for the first time, this play will solidify a lasting friendship between the audience and one of literature’s most unforgettable characters.

The cast will present a short preview of the play followed by a time for questions from the audience.  All ages are welcome.
