The classic tale of an orphan girl, Anne, who rises from destitution to happiness in the farm country entirely by virtue of her pluck and personality. Anne's adventures at Green Gables, the farm owned by her new caretakers, are both comical and heartwarming. 

Originating in Canada, the play left capacity audiences there to journey to London, where it opened to acclaim. The original Anne of Green Gables novel is the first in a prized series by writer L.M. Montgomery.


"The book Anne of Green Gables has been made into a neatly packaged family show, sentimental, tuneful and blending gentle bucolic humor with old world pathos... A pleasant atmosphere is created from the start; the songs are in neat harmony."
