Anne Shirley is a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan who arrives at the Bright River Railway Station full of hope for a new life. When she arrives at Green Gables, the home of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, Anne is devastated when she discovers that the elderly couple is expecting a boy from the orphanage… 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 our largest cast yet, beautiful costumes by Jocelyn Perry, and stunning sets designed by Bancroft’s own Mary Williams, Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ is a humorous, touching, and truly athletic musical that will inspire your imagination, tickle your funny bone, and mesmerize you with both graceful and exhilarating singing and dancing.

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES-THE MUSICAL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. www.concordtheatricals.com

RELAXED PERFORMANCE: Sunday, July 28th @ 2 PM will be a relaxed performance of Anne of Green Gables for anyone who may enjoy a calmer theatre environment. Relaxed performances were initially designed to make theatre spaces more comfortable and welcoming to audience members with autism spectrum disorders, sensory and communication disorders or learning disabilities. Other audience members who may benefit from Relaxed Performances include parents with toddlers, people with Tourette’s syndrome, people who experience anxiety, or even people who just don’t enjoy the conventions that are experienced in a traditional theatre setting. Some relaxed performances include adjustments to the technical elements of the show (for example, reducing the volume on loud sound cues or removing strobing lighting effects or full blackouts), leaving lights on in the audience throughout the show, allowing audience members to leave the theatre and return at any point, and assuring patrons that noise and movement during the show is acceptable. They can also include the actors introducing themselves before the show and leading a pre-show discussion about any elements of the performance that patrons might find surprising or startling (moments of staged violence, actors entering into the audience etc.).For more information on relaxed performances please call the box office or email info@tweedandcompany.com.
