Based on the novel by L. M. Montgomery

Follow the misadventures of everyone's favorite red-headed orphan girl! Lucy Maud Montgomery's timeless classic, cherished by generations, comes to life in this charming musical adaptation. Anne Shirley is mistakenly sent to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a plainspoken farmer and his spinster sister, who thought they were adopting a boy! She wins over the Cuthberts, and all of Prince Edward Island, with her irrepressible spirit and imagination --and we're sure she'll win over our Young Audiences and their families with her warm, poignant story about love, home and family.
