In Rehearsal

Our children are excited to prepare for you a production of Anne of Green Gables — a refreshing, contemporary telling of the classic story. Stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew hoped to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne by mistake, and their lives will never be the same. Her warmth and wit affect everyone around her - even, eventually, the cold Marilla. We follow Anne through her rebellious years, her transformation into a young woman, and her romantic pairing with Gilbert.

This play appearing July 20-29, 2018 has been charming audiences around the world. Showtimes are 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:00pm on Sundays. Doors open 30 minutes before show time. Tickets are already selling fast so reserve your seats today!! Call 352-493-2787 (493-ARTS).
