Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of "kindred spirits." This swift yet theatrical adaptation of the classic novel is an all-ages crowd-pleaser.

Published Reviews

"It is very rare to experience a piece of theater that is absolutely delightful from start to finish... Although classified as 'family drama,' Anne of Green Gables is a production that would entertain and charm a theatergoer of any age."

David Cregan, Main Line Times (Philadelphia)

"It is a theme irresistible to the young, and has enough depth in its characterizations to engage an older audience."

Anders Beck, Daily Local News (West Chester, PA)

"Enchanting... This reads like a labor of love."

Mary Beth Cavert, L.M. Montgomery Scholar

"Plenty of novel adaptations succeed on stage, but never has one made me want to read the book like Peter DeLaurier's charming version. Can L.M. Montgomery's 99-year-old story about an orphan in 1890's rural Canada really be as delightful and rich?"

Mark Cofta, Philadelphia Citypaper
