    My husband and I love theatre and we are introducing many different genres to our 4 children. This is such a sweet story and we would love to do a comparison, like a Venn Diagram, with the book and this production with our 6 and 4 year old girls. We would love to attend and spread the word about not only the production but of the story, too!

    Thank you and Happy Easter!

  • Ann Kaiser

    Anne has always held a special place in my heart – we share a name too. I’ve read all the books & have watched the pbs series whenever I’m sick in bed (even now!). I’d love to introduce this story to my own kids.

  • Jenna

    I am so excited to see that Anne of Green Gables musical is coming to GR! I adored those books as a child (ok, I still do) and can’t wait til my daughter is old enough to enjoy them. My mom and I were supposed to go visit Prince Edward Island but then she got sick and we weren’t able to go. I’d love to be able to take her to see it close to where we live! Next best thing if we can’t go visit the island!

  • tiffany wagner

    would love to see the book we read brought to life with my two daughters ages 11 and 13.

  • Jaime Hall

    We just bought the series for my almost 8 yr old and I to read together this year. Seeing it onstage would bring the books to life!!

  • Christine Stander

  • georgie

    Anne of Green Gables is one our favorite stories. My mom is actually from this area of Canada and the Anne of Green Gables books were favorites of hers and her sisters as well as my Grandma’s. IN the words of my aunt Mary, “We were so eager to get our hands on anything to read and we read Anne of Green Gables over and over. I just loved her and her stories.” My daughter is the 4th generation to enjoy these stories to which she has a cultural connection! And the character Anne is just a wonderful personality for girls, in my opinion. she is proud, brave, smart and gets into plenty of trouble and learns lots of lessons and has great success in life. She’s spunky and the adults learn a lot from her too.

    I also love the idea of seeing these stories on stage. It is another way to experience a favorite story and character. We have done this with other books as well like Ramona and Beezus -book, movie, play. Helps young minds absorb the story and experience in deeper and in different ways.

  • Christy Noordhoek

    I would love to win the tickets and take my daughters and mother in-law. We love the few shows that we have been able to see at the civic theater and I LOVE the story of Anne Of Green Gables. I caught a marathon of the movie 1-2 years ago on PBS.

  • Kristen

    I would love to introduce my boys to a story that I love!

    I remember reading the books as a kid and want to share the memory with my kids.

  • Kathy

    Anne’s loyalty, enthusiasm and indomitable spirit are timeless, and I’d love to have my 3 kids see her story. My daughter has inherited and enjoyed my old copies of the “Anne” books, and my sons have heard me relate many of Anne’s escapades. They would all have fun watching her story come to life. And, to be honest, I want to see it to! You can never have too much “Anne with an ‘e'”.

  • Shawn B!

    I have always loved Anne of Green Gables, I would live to share this with my daughter!

  • Christie

    This was one of my favorite series of books as a child. My daughters just started reading the first one. With all the possible distractions available to them, attending the show would be an awesome motivation for them to finish the book before we go.

  • Emily D

    I absolutely love Anne of Green Gables! She was one of my favorite literary characters as a child. I could always relate to her passion, strong spirit and her good intentioned disasters. We have a few water old copies of the books and I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to incorporate them into our read alouds. My children will just love her quirky adventurers. This would be a great way to introduce them to Anne! Who a great opportunity!

  • angie cisneros

    I would like to take the kids to the theater.

  • Cindy O.

    I read the story as a child, I would love to share this with my daughters! This is a great story to tell kids of this generation that there is more to learn then just technology , let the outdoor adventures take you outside and explore!

  • Sara

    My children have been to some high school plays and really enjoyed them. They have never been to the civic theater for a performance. I want them to appreciate live stage shows and not just movies.

    One of my favorite movies as a child – would love to share with my girls!

  • Jodi

    My 5 year old daughter has a love of musicals and we recently went to our first live performance done by a civic theater on the lakeshore. She will not stop singing the songs and dancing! I would love for her to see Anne of Green Gables, not only because they share a very similar name (my dd’s name is Anna), but because it is a great family classic, with a great message. In a world of not-so-great role models, Anne is someone I want my daughter to meet!

  • Eunice

    i would love to take my 5yr old to her first play, and what better one than this classic!!

  • Courtney

    I read this book over and over again as a child. I fell in love with Anne the moment I “met” her. I would love to introduce my daughter to GRCT’s musical version of this beloved series.

  • Cindy K

    L.M. Montgomery is an incredible author! She uses words so eloquently, phrases normal things in a way that seem incredibly insightful, and make every-day people come alive with all their quirks and passions. I hope the theatre production brings these traits to life!

  • Tonya

    I love Anne! One of my very favorite movies as a kid. It would be so neat to see the story in theater with my 4 year old!

  • Rachel

    We would love to have our kids see this, wonderful classic, great exposure to the arts.

  • Elizabeth McKay

    I had pneumonia as a child many many times, and this movie was what helped me through the long days of feeling like garbage! How sweet it is going to be at civic! I would love to take my mom and two girls to have a girls night out at the theater.

  • Ashley

    My middle child turns four on the 18th. I would love to take her and her sister (5) to this. Not only do they love performing arts, they also can always use a healthy, positive girl role model. Anne is intelligent, kind, and funny; one of my favorite childhood characters!

  • Heidi S

    We would love to win because we enjoy theatre abd would love to take our kids to see it. Grew up loving the story and the movies. Would like to share that with our kids. Unfortunately hubby lost his job the beginning of the year and money is very tight on one paycheck so not much leftover for “fun” stuff right now and so this would give us something fun to do together and share our love of the theatre and the story itself with the kids.

  • Gina Dragt

    We love Anne! My girls and I want to see this so badly :]

  • Leigh Ann Chachulski

    The story of a feisty little girl will certainly resonate with my 10 year old daughter. We enjoy seeing live stage productions together whenever we are able to afford it. Civic theatre is wonderful at making this possible!

  • Heather Kraai

    I LOVED the books and the series. It would be totally awesome to be able to see it on stage!

    We have been watching this show for a long time and it would mean the world to me :)

    We just started reading this series with my two oldest girls and I know they would love to see the live production!

    I grew up watching live theater and my husband and I introduced our daughter to it beginning when she was 2 years old. She is now almost 7 and she LOVES seeing people act on stage, and we especially love watching plays at the Civic! We have had to cut back on extraneous spending recently, so it would be a treat for us to be able to take our daughter to see “Anne of Green Gables.”

  • Alison Joy

    I grew up with Anne of Green Gables. My mother named my sister after the town of Avonlea so Lucy Maude was a big part of all of our lives since the day we were born. My entire families dream is to go to Prince Edward Isle one day, but seeing the play would be amazing as well. I have only seen the movies (and the Avonlea series that was on Disney) and read the books. To see the play would be such a pleasure for me, my sister, my mother, and my daughter. It would be a memory we would treasure forever.

    Anne of green gables would be the perfect play to introduce my son to theatre . My family was never big into plays, but I went to a couple a few years ago and since then I’m hooked and definitely want to introduce my son to them.
