There’s also Gilbert Blythe, the boy who teases Anne and gets a slate broken over his head for it. The young romance blossoms much like it does in the original.

A new adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel tells the story of Anne Shirley.

I hope ANNE OF GREEN GABLES is a musical families can go to and come away from remembering the music and its impact on the way the story is told.

Anne contends that there are "two Annes" living inside her, causing her to be troublesome.

Natalie and Nick are just two of the many that have been influenced by/have had influence on their characters. Being onstage is a great opportunity to explore aspects of your personality that you may not have even known. The best part of becoming a new character is how the relationships onstage spill over into real life. As someone who was extremely new to Quincy, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES provided a unique opportunity to make new friends. After spending hours upon hours developing the onstage relationships between our characters, it was completely natural to turn our onstage friendships into reality.

Anne finds herself in the midst of conflict when a peer challenges her to a game of dare.

I saw Anne of Green Gables, the mini-series, for the first time when I was 12 years old. It was as close to a religious experience as I have ever had. I was covered in freckles, with a temper to match, and I never had a heroine speak so directly to my soul. I have committed almost every frame of those movies to memory, but one of the scenes that I try to rip off as much as possible when writing romantic scenes between myself and in my show, Playing House, is when Gilbert proposes to Anne for the first time on that bridge in the fog. Anne is right on the brink of womanhood, as it were, and all of her friends are pairing up and settling down. Anne has always known that she is destined for a life that is bigger than what her beloved Avonlea has to offer—but she has no idea what is ahead of her, and she is mourning the fact that the beautiful life, as she has known it, is about to change. When she says to Gilbert, “I don’t want any of it to change. I wish I could just hold on to those days forever. I have a feeling things will never be the same again,” my heart would just ache and ache, because I’ve always been desperately afraid of change.
