It’s time for Pied Piper’s spring show: Anne of Green Gables. According to the theater company,
"This family classic relives the poignant and funny story of Anne Shirley, the spunky, red-headed orphan who comes to Prince Edward Island hoping to find a happy home.
Freckled-faced Anne arrives at the Bright River Railway Station full of hope for a new life at the home of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. She is devastated when she discovers that the elderly couple was expecting a boy and ecstatic when they decide to keep her! With her fiery temper, passion for melodrama and romance, and penchant for misadventures, Anne brings laughter, love and more than a little consternation to the village of Avonlea.”
The cast is mostly kids with a few adults thrown in for good measure. The shows are well done and fun to watch – especially with your kids!
