Anne of Green Gables Opens FRIDAY!!


Western Reserve Playhouse presents

“Anne of Green Gables” 

from the novel L.M. Montgomery, adapted by Joseph Robinette

Directed by Brianna Joi


This new dramatization captures the charm and excitement of L.M. Montgomery’s enduring classic about 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, 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.

The star studded cast is lead by Molly Kessler (Anne), Harriet DeVeto (Marilla), Tenley Stitzer (Diana), and Stephen Morse (Matthew).  One of the largest main stage production on WRP Stage we are thrilled to bring back, James Patrick (Gilbert), Kerry Scanlon (Mrs. Barry), Kathy Pekarcik (Rachel), Dorota Zarzveka, and Zach Manthey.  Also new to the WRP stage are, Kathy Turk, Katie Heckroth, Lily Drybola, Trevor Kessler, Colleen Kessler, Ella Bozan, Camryn Henderson, Scarlett Dudley, Rosalie Sajovie, Catherine Messner, Barbara Stitzer, and Suzanne Heckroth. Directed by Brianna Joi, Stage Managed by Hannah Hilty , Costume Design by Kelsey Tomlinson (Little Women), Light Design by Daniel Hunsicker (Heather’s The Musical), props by Sue Snyder (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Set Design by Walt Kaminski, and Set Construction by Jim Gremba.
