The Elora Community Theatre begins its 47th season of theatre with a stage adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s timeless classic Anne of Green Gables. Director Deb Stanson states “Anne of Green Gables is celebrating its 110 anniversary of publication this year and we are hoping people of all ages will come, even if they do not have children! The adaptation is very true to the novel.”
The play tells the beloved story of orphan Anne Shirley, who is mistakenly sent to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, 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. With a cast of 38, Anne of Green Gables is sure to be a holiday favourite!
The play opens December 7 – 9 and December 14 – 16 at the Fergus Grand Theatre. Tickets are available at the box office or online www.fergusgrandtheatre.ca
