Anne from Anne of Green Gables is an orphan girl living in Prince Edward Island, Canada in the early part of the 20th century — which happens to be the same era in which the Sherman Playhouse was built. The book, and the play based on it that's currently showing as said playhouse, chronicles Anne's journey, from her first encounter with her "austere guardian" to her graduation from the Queen's Academy. See it on Fridays and Saturdays through the end of the month.
