Children's novel comes to life



March 13, 2003|By Lori Sears

She's irrepressible and adventurous. Spunky and talkative. And terribly lovable. She's Anne of the children's classic novel Anne of Green Gables.

Pumpkin Theatre presents an original stage adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's book this weekend and next weekend at the Hannah More Arts Center in Stevenson.

Local playwright David Rawlings Brown penned this adaptation of the story about the young orphan who manages to work her way into everyone's heart. Molly Jackson stars as Anne. Liz Boyer Hunnicutt and Robert Riggs play Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, the sister and brother who take the young girl into their home. Todd Pearthree directs the show.

Pumpkin Theatre presents "Anne of Green Gables" at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and March 23, and at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 22 at the Hannah More Arts Center, St. Timothy's School for Girls, 8400 Greenspring Ave., Stevenson. $10. Call 410-828-1814.
