Anne of Green Gables Auditions

Posted

Granbury Theatre Company will be accepting video audition tapes for their production of “Anne of Green Gables” now through Sunday, Dec. 3. Callbacks will be Wednesday, Dec. 6 and rehearsals begin Saturday, Dec. 9.

“Anne of Green Gables” will be the first show of the new year for Granbury Theatre Company. The play will run Friday, Jan. 19 through Sunday, Feb. 4.

Director of the show Tracie Griffiths is joined by assistant director Haley Twaddell and stage manager Victoria Minton-Tate for the “Anne of Greene Gables” production.

Based on the novel by L.M. Montgomery the story was adapted for stage by R.N. Sandberg. Originally published in 1908 the story follows an orphan girl named Anne Shirley on Canada’s Prince Edward Island in the late nineteenth century.

The popular story has been translated into at least 36 languages and has sold more than 50 million copies, making it one of the best-selling books worldwide. Montgomery wrote a series after the initial book that follows Anne’s life.

In the original book Anne is sent from the orphanage live with a brother and sister by mistake. Matthew Cuthbert and his sister Marilla had asked for a boy to help work their beautiful farm outside of picturesque Avonlea.

Spunky Anne cheerfully faces her adventures and challenges with a surprising amount of self-confidence considering her sad background. Though Matthew likes Anne immediately, Marilla takes a bit more convincing.

“Anne of Greene Gables” follows the relationships she forms at school, with the townspeople and with Matthew and Marilla.
