Pontiac Theatre IV Announces Auditions for Anne of Avonlea

By on September 5, 2019

Pontiac Theatre IV is pleased to announce auditions for its upcoming family show, Anne of Avonlea from the novel by L. M. Montgomery written by Joseph Robinette,” directed by John Tonner with Assistant Director Sean Harbert.

Anne of Avonlea is the first sequel to the classic Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. Told in the form of a memory play, this tells Anne’s story from Matthew’s death until she applies to attend University after two years of teaching. As a memory play, the story is told in short scenes and with Anne as both a participant and narrator.

The cast for Anne of Avonlea is large and includes adults (both men and women), children and teens. Since the show is written in such short scenes we are able to work around any schedule, except for the actress who plays Anne. Please note all the ages are suggestions, not requirements.
