The Catskill Community Players are proud to present Anne of Green Gables, a play by Alice Chadwicke adapted from the novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
The stern Marilla (played by Rebecca Newman) and her warm-hearted brother Matthew (Joe Mungavin) hoped to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne (played by Rachel Adams & on Sundays by Alyssa Christman) 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. (Joshua Turan).
The play is directed by Dave Turan, with original music written and performed by Lissa Sidoli. This is a family show, appropriate for all ages, including children who are able to sit through a long show.
There is also a raffle for an “Anne of Green Gables” Collector’s Porcelain Doll. Raffle tickets are available at all performances, or by calling 326-7908, and the winner will be drawn at the last performance — no need to be present to win.
The play will run for two weekends and be presented in two different Theaters.
