'Anne of Green Gables' at Leddy

EPPING —Leddy Center for the Performing Arts’ Executive Director, Elaine Gatchell,

is pleased to present the delightful musical, “Anne of Green Gables” from

October 25 through November 13, at the Leddy Center on Ladd’s Lane in Epping.

Performances are Fridays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays, Sundays, and one Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. School performances are October 30, and November 13, at 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Based on L.M. Montgomery’s popular book—the first of a series about Anne Shirley —“Anne of Green Gables” is the perfect show in its ability to capture the imagination of all ages, both male and female, and take them on a sometimes hilarious, always enjoyable journey through four years of Anne’s life on Prince Edward Island.

Younger Anne is endearingly portrayed by Nen Horan of Sandown, projecting every nuance of emotion—from fiery temper to vivid imagination —that sets Anne’s course in life. Older Anne is played with gentle assurance by Sara Schwab of Hampton.

She is the perfect complement to Nen’s youth, capturing the essence that defines Anne and carrying it within her very soul. Younger Gilbert is played by Ryan Dever of Exeter and Older Gilbert is played by Collin George of Exeter. Marilla Cuthbert is played by Lynn Rockwell of Chester, and Matthew Cuthbert is played by Greg deZarn O’Hare of Fremont. Young Diana is played by Ally Roeder of Exeter and Older Diana is played by Nicole Currier of Fremont. A full cast of older and younger friends of Anne and the wonderful ladies and gentlemen of Avonlea, make this a show that will be loved by all.

Tickets are $18.00 online at, or by calling the box office, Mon.-Fri., from 3:00-5:00 p.m., at 603-679-2781. School performances must be reserved through the office during office hours.
