The Windham Theatre Guild proudly presents a heartwarming theatrical event for its final
Main Stage production of the season…L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, dramatized by Joseph Robinette.
It is 1908, and Anne Shirley, a feisty red-haired orphan, arrives by mistake at the Canadian farm of Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had been expecting to adopt a boy. Not all goes smoothly for an unconventional girl in a staid farming community, and the family must decide whether to send her back to the orphanage. Written with great passion and heart, Anne's story forges a lasting bond between the audience and one of literature’s most unforgettable free spirits. This play was based on the beloved novel by L.M. Montgomery that has been translated into 36 languages.
This wonderful production is under the direction of Jill Zarcone who also brought One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Miracle Worker and To Kill A Mockingbird to life at the Burton Leavitt Theatre.
