Synopsis

Anne of Green Gables is a 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery (published as L. M. Montgomery). Written for all ages, it has been considered a children’s novel since the mid-twentieth century. It recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan girl who is mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who had intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in the fictional town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island.

The novel recounts how Anne makes her way with the Cuthberts, in school, and within the town. Anne Shirley, a young orphan from the fictional community of Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia (based upon the real community of New London, Prince Edward Island), is sent to live with Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, siblings in their fifties and sixties, after a childhood spent in strangers’ homes and orphanages. Marilla and Matthew had originally decided to adopt a boy from the orphanage to help Matthew run their farm at Green Gables, which is set in the fictional town of Avonlea. Through a misunderstanding, the orphanage sends Anne instead.

Anne is highly imaginative, eager to please and, at times, quite a dramatic individual. However, she is defensive about her appearance, despising her red hair and pale, thin frame. She is often quite talkative, especially when it comes to describing her fantasies and dreams. At first, stern and sharp Marilla says Anne must return to the orphanage, but after much observation and considering, along with Matthew’s strong liking to Anne, she decides to let her stay.

As a child of imagination, Anne takes much joy in life and adapts quickly, thriving in the close-knit farming village. Her imagination and talkativeness soon brighten up Green Gables.

Confederation Centre Updates 2020 Schedule

March 30 Update from Confederation Centre of the Arts

The 2020 Charlottetown Festival is now scheduled to begin first previews in late June

The Confederation Centre team is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation each day. Following the advice of the Chief Public Health Officer, the Centre is encouraging everyone to stay safe and continue supporting one another through these unprecedented times.

CEO Steve Bellamy announced today that The Charlottetown Festival will run on a revised schedule, beginning in late June, pending further updates from the Chief Public Health Officer.

The Festival was originally to launch previews in early June for its flagship, Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™<https://confederationcentre.com/whats-on/anne-of-green-gables-the-musical/>. Due to the impact of COVID-19, all performances of Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™<https://confederationcentre.com/whats-on/anne-of-green-gables-the-musical/> from June 3-23 have been cancelled, with previews now beginning on June 27.

At this time, all other shows in The Charlottetown Festival will run as scheduled, opening in late June and early July and running until September 25 and 26. The revised schedule will depend on how the situation evolves over the coming weeks.

For those patrons whose performances have been cancelled, the Box Office will be in touch in the coming weeks to discuss options. The Centre team is dealing with a high volume of calls and greatly appreciates the support of patrons to date.

“We respect that there is still a high degree of uncertainty about what will be possible in the late summer and fall,” offers Bellamy. “We are adjusting our plans as the situation develops, and we will continue to do so in the weeks and months ahead. Whenever it becomes safe to gather again, we want to be ready for our patrons, members, and artists. We are looking forward to sharing the joy we all experience when we engage together as a community with the arts.”

Currently, all Centre programming has been cancelled or delayed until further notice. The Centre building itself remains closed to the public based on guidance from Public Health, however many staff are working from home and available via email and phone.
Bellamy continues, “Although current events have been cancelled, we are planning, at this point, for a late June start to The 2020 Charlottetown Festival–so long as it safe to do so.”

Please continue to visit the Centre website<https://confederationcentre.com/> and Centre social media for up-to-date information on the Centre’s response to this evolving situation.

Confederation Centre wishes to acknowledge the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their continued support.
