Anne of Green Gables
Perth & District Collegiate Institute
After a two-year hiatus, Perth Community choir is excited to return to the stage for its 34th production with Anne of Green Gables The Musical. This family musical tells the poignant and funny story of a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley who arrives at the Bright River Railway Station full of hope for a new life. Her destination is the home of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When she arrives at Green Gables, Anne is devastated when she discovers that the elderly couple is expecting a boy from the orphanage, and then ecstatic when they decide to keep her. With her fiery temper, love of melodrama and romance, and penchant for misadventure, she brings laughter, love, and more than a little consternation to the Cuthberts’ quiet lives. In return, Anne finds the happiness and the home she has longed for all her life.
With a company of over 60 local performers ages 6-80 and a 10-member live orchestra, this Canadian classic has delighted millions of people at Confederation Centre. Anne of Green Gables – the Musical is a humorous and touching musical that will inspire your imagination and tickle your funny bone.
