THEATRE 29 ANNOUNCES AUDITIONS FOR "ANNE OF GREEN GABLES - THE MUSICAL"
Auditions for the fifth production of Theatre
29's 2012 season, the heart-warming new musical,

novel of the same name by Lucy Maud Montgomery,
will take the stage for five weeks beginning

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.
