“I rate this ***** (five stars). I loved the effort they put into it. It was also great because even though they had to cut out some scenes, it was still awesome. I felt the actors were actually in the play, not acting, but real. They showed emotion and grace while acting. I recommend watching this great play. I also want to add that I loved the setting and how they made the clothes. My friend Laura was in it, and she played Marilla. I got to hug her. She was great.” — Brooks Zino

“I loved ‘Anne of Green Gables’ because the costumes and scenery were amazing. The actors had so many lines to remember. The play was so wonderful, and I want to see it again.
