Anne of Green Gables

By Peter DeLaurier

Directed by Andrew Sharp

Anne of Green Gables is the story of eleven-year-old Anne Shirley, who is brought from an orphanage to Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert by mistake after they sent for a boy. Anne instantly charms Matthew, who is an old bachelor, with her huge imagination, her never-ending stream of chatter, and her love for the world and the people who inhabit it. Her flighty ways are a trial for the no-nonsense Marilla, as Anne gets in one amusing scrape after another. But one day Marilla realizes - to her surprise - that there is no one she loves more than Anne and that Green Gables would be empty without her.

Auditions will be held on the following days:


Auditions for the show will be held in UW-Richland’s Coppertop Theater on Tuesday, January 23 and Wednesday, January 24 at 6:30 p.m. Call backs, if needed, will be Thursday, January 25.
In addition to Anne and Marilla, we will need Anne’s school mates, some of the girls’ mothers, and the women of the town. There are also parts for males, most specifically Matthew and Gilbert Blythe.”
People auditioning will be asked to read from the script. All ages are welcome! The show is not the musical version and no singing is required. The play closely follows the book and Sharp suggests that people wishing to try out read as much of the book as they can.
As always, people interested in helping out behind the scenes in any way are encouraged to attend auditions as well. New faces are very welcome! For more information, please email
