WINDHAM THEATRE GUILD
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
WHAT: The Windham Theatre Guild will hold open auditions for their final Main Stage Show for the 2018-2019 Season…Anne of Green Gables— adapted by Joseph Robinette, from the beloved novel by L.M. Montgomery. It is 1908, and Anne Shirley, a feisty red-haired orphan, arrives by mistake at the Canadian farm of the Cuthberts, 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.
