Anne of Green Gables – A Timeless Classic
Relive the story of never-ending passion and imagination
Lucy Maud Montgomery's story of a fiery red-haired orphan is one that many few have forgotten. From the day Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert adopted her into their home, Anne Shirley (that's Anne – spelt with an "e") has won the hearts of readers from around the world. Her kindred friendship with Diana Barry, blossoming romance with Gilbert Blythe and a never-ending passion for imagination and independence are still celebrated to this day - in Prince Edward Island, where it all started.
Headlining the Charlottetown Festival at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, this stage adaptation brings drama, song and dance to the classic story and has become Canada's longest running musical.
From the gabled house that inspired the setting of Lucy Maud Montgomery's wondrous story, to Avonlea Village where Anne lived, Green Gable Shore lets you explore the life of Anne Shirley, our favourite red-haired orphan.
Born in New London, Prince Edward Island, the woman who introduced us to the fiery determination and relentless spirit of Anne Shirley is also considered one of the most beloved authors of our time.
