Anne of Green Gables - The Musical™ Listing: Anne of Green Gables - The Musical™
The Charlottetown Festival's crown jewel musical returns for its 56th consecutive summer, a testament to the global appeal of "a classic inspired by a classic". This is the enduring story of an orphan girl who came from away and changed the Island forever. 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 Cuthbert's quiet lives. In return, Anne finds the happiness and the home she has longed for all her life.
