DEC. 1 TO 19 Anne Shirley, the ebullient, red-haired orphan from L.M. Montgomery’s classic Anne of Green Gables, is poised to start her new teaching job at the Avonlea school. To complicate things further, her former rival and childhood friend, Gilbert Blythe, proposes to her — but he doesn’t quite live up to her sentimental ideal of true love. What’s a girl to do? Through music and dance, Anne & Gilbert: The Musical chronicles the continuing adventures of Canada’s favourite redhead. The play was written and premiered in Prince Edward Island, and its music has received an East Coast Music Award. —Amy Allen
