Description:

Auditions for the fifth production of Theatre

"Anne of Green Gables", have been scheduled for

Monday, July 2nd at 6:00 pm on the Theatre 29

This musical, based on the children's classic

novel of the same name by Lucy Maud Montgomery,

will take the stage for five weeks beginning

August 24th through September 22nd.

In "Anne of Green Gables, the Musical", follow

the misadventures of a wildly independent orphan

with fiery red hair and a temper to match. Anne

Shirley is mistakenly sent to live with a

plainspoken farmer and his spinster sister, who

thought they were adopting a boy! She wins over

the Cuthberts, and all of Prince Edward Island,

with her irrepressible spirit and

imagination--and wins over audiences with her

warm, poignant story about love, home and family.
