JEFFERSON CITY—Legacy Theatre’s production of Peter DeLaurier’s Anne of Green Gables will premier on stage March 30, and April 1-2, 2017 in Jefferson City.
This popular stage play is adapted from the children’s literature classic of the same name by Lucy Maude Montgomery which has sold more than 50 million copies. It tells the tale of a young orphan girl, full of delightful imagination, that is mistakenly sent to a middle aged brother and s ister. What follows is sure to bring both laughter and tears as this threesome learns and grows together. It is a wonderful play for all ages.
Artistic Director, Peggy Horton Price shares, “We have a very strong cast to tell this timeless story. Even in rehearsal, it is already beginning to touch our hearts. I know the community is going to love it!”
