Calendar/Event Details

Welcome to the Northwest premier of Bend in the Road: The Anne of Green Gables Musical. This high-energy, brand new family musical is based on the beloved classic novel, "Anne of Green Gables", by Lucy Maud Montgomery with book and lyrics by Benita Scheckel and music and lyrics by Michael Upward.

Anne Shirley, an orphan, is mistakenly adopted by siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert to help them on their Avonlea farm. Anne’s intelligent, joyous and imaginative ways change the lives of all those around her. Bend in the Road’s themes of finding a home, being an intelligent and independent woman, using the power of imagination and growing up resonate with audiences from all walks of life.

“The songs offer that kind of welcome simplicity and optimism that serve the storytelling well.” “The authors have captured the key plot elements, and more importantly, have retained the heart of this most emotionally rewarding of stories.” 

Bend in the Road: The Anne if Green Gables Musical is a warm, funny and savvy musical adaptation of one of the most beloved stories in literature. You won’t want to miss this exciting show that tells Anne’s story of taking each ‘bend inthe road’ of life as an opportunity for growth and new adventures.

Bend in the Road runs for four weekends, Saturday and Sunday, July 30, 31; August 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21; 2022 – 2:00 pm.
