Hayswood Theatre (115 Capitol Avenue, Corydon, Indiana), is pleased to announce its production Anne of Green Gables, which will run February 8 – 24.
Set in the early 1900’s on Prince Edward Island, Canada. It is a refreshing, contemporary telling by Sylvia Ashvy of the classic story, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew hoped to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne 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.
Directed by Kathy Norton. The cast includes Lila Schaffner as Anne Shirley, Heidi Platt as Marilla Cuthbert, Richard Pauley as Matthew Cuthbert, Emily Trinkle, Scott Smith, Kevin Anderson, Jen Anderson, Cassandra Copperwaite, Molly Schaffner, Denver Bays, Hannah Elliott, Sophia Stuffle, Olivia Spencer, Tucker Donovan, Nehemiah McSpadden and Silas Haendiges.
