Another Dr. Kearney's Classic

Jan 17, 2013

Anne of Green Gables FSJ From stage to series, the story of Anne of Green Gables is a classic Canadian tale that is loved by all. If you haven’t seen the story live, now is your chance. The delightful students from Dr. Kearney’s musical theater class will be presenting the show at the North Peace Cultural Centre, January 17th – 19th.

These musical theater students have performed both traditional plays such as 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream' along with modern theater adaptations like 'The Wedding Singer'. This new performance will be putting a fresh spin on an esteemed Canadian story.

The story itself, which was L.M. Montgomery’s first novel, will be turning 105 this year and is still influencing readers young and old.

A charming red-head, Anne rises above hardship to happiness in the farm country entirely by virtue of her pluck and personality. Interestingly enough, The New York Times in their original review called the red-headed orphan “mawkish,” but they admitted they were wrong almost ninety years later when they included Anne of Green Gables as an “Oops” in their one-hundred year retrospective of reviews.

Don’t have your own oops - make sure you get tickets to this iconic play.
