“In the wake of the global pandemic, finally returning to the stage has been a much-needed creative outlet,” states RLHS senior and actress Amelia Hansing.
Based on the classic novel, this adaption of “Anne of Green Gables” by Peter DeLaurier follows Anne, a squirrely, young orphan, set on wooing the hearts of her new adoptive parents. Aging brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, learn to appreciate Anne’s “great scope for imagination.” Through her unprecedented reactions, erratic decision-making, and romantic perspective, Anne discovers unwavering love, friendship, and family in the beautiful “kindred spirits” of Avonlea.
RLHS alumnus and theatre director Petr Jaros states: “Lights up on the RLHS Performing Arts Department as the cast and crew bring the spontaneous spirit of ‘Anne of Green Gables’ to the stage!”
