The moving, emotional, and deeply affecting,
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
This new dramatization captures the charm and excitement of L.M. Montgomery’s enduring classic novels, and also the beloved TV mini-series starring Megan Follows and Colleen Dewhurst. It follows an orphan girl, Anne Shirley, from her first encounter with her austere guardian to her thrilling graduation from Queen’s Academy. the play faithfully recreates the memorable events and characters from the brilliant novel. all the tragedies and triumphs that mark Anne’s growth from adolescence to early adulthood are here: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken wine bottle, the cake disaster, the broken leg, the scholastic achievements, and the saving of Green Gables. Whether the playgoer is an “old friend” of Anne’s or meeting her for the first time, this play will solidify a lasting friendship between the audience and one of literature’s most unforgettable characters.

Begin your Family Holiday Celebration With
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
In our American culture It’s A Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. The story is a natural for a stage adaption: the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel, Clarence has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him, by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born, that this has been, after all, a wonderful life. this faithful adaption has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one’s family and community will be rewarded.
