Anne of Avonlea is the enchanting sequel to L.M. Montgomery's immortal classic Anne of Green Gables and brings to the stage the continuing adventures of one of literature's most endearing characters, Anne Shirley. From her first days as a young schoolteacher to her departure for Redmond College, the play abounds with such familiar names as Marilla Cuthbert, Rachel Lynde, Diana Barry and Gilbert Blythe. There are many new characters as well, including the cantankerous neighbor, Mr. Harrison (and his parrot!), the mysterious Miss Lavendar, the irrepressible twins, Davey and Dora, and Anne's lively, most loveable, and high-spirited students. We also see flashbacks of Anne's early life and how she came to live at Green Gables. All ages will enjoy this wonderful story of Anne with an "e" as she grows up and warms our hearts all over again.
