Complete Anne of Green Gables Novels Boxed Set

Based on the novel Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

A young orphan finally gets a chance for a real family after years of being used as a workhorse, but first she will have to let go of her fantasy life.

Anne comes to Prince Edward Island but finds herself unwanted because the Cuthberts had asked for a boy. She soon wins them over, however, and the audience sees that the Cuthberts need Anne as much as she needs them.

This coming of age story is a wonderful adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel, "Anne of Green Gables". The story has become a Canadian classic and is one of few musicals to portray rural life in the early part of the 20th century.

Anne of Green Gables is an excellent source for audition songs for boys and girls ages 12 - 16. The music is age appropriate, pleasing and fairly easy to learn, but the show itself is not well known, so the songs won't be overdone unlike most audition material for this age group.
