Theatre News: Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gables is one of those books that has a special place in the hearts of many. This mischievous well-meaning orphan is so relatable that she’s become a heroine and friend for book lovers across the world.

From Thursday 26 – Sunday 29 May 2022 London Children’s Ballet presents a brand new narrative ballet of the book. Written in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables is the story of a lively, imaginative 11 year old orphan who lives on Canada’s Prince Edward Island. Adopted by an elderly brother and sister, Anne gets herself into endless scrapes but eventually wins over the community with her endearing, fearless character and passionate nature.

London Children’s Ballet will be performing a brand new ballet with 60 young dancers, aged 9-16 yrs, based on the classic Canadian story of Anne of Green Gables                                                      Photography by ASH
