A FREE Virtual Schooltime Performance presented by the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and Co-Presented with Florida Studio Theatre

“When you imagine, sometimes you find what you need. When you imagine, you find a home.” Matthew Cuthbert and his sister Marilla need a boy to help with the chores around their farm on Prince Edward Island. They are not expecting Anne Shirley, a vivacious orphan with a wild imagination and a breathless fascination to find a place she can call home.

ArtsPower’s heart-warming musical, based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved novels, follows Anne on her unlikely journey to find the family she’s always wanted.
