About the Show

Based on L.M Montgomery’s timeless classic, Anne of Green Gables – The MusicalTM follows the rise of Anne Shirley, a feisty, red-haired orphan who arrives unexpectedly in the small community of Avonlea to the Cuthburts, who were expecting a boy to help on their farm, Green Gables.   The story follows the precocious and imaginative Anne as she captures the hearts and minds of the small farming community – and her new-found family – simply by the virtue of her own pluck and personality. This original, glorious adaptation continues to enrapture audiences across the world with its rich score and a rare, affecting story for all ages.

Anne of Green Gables – The Musical is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. Book by Donald Harron, Music by Norman Campbell, Adapted from the novel by L. M. Montgomery

Your Director

Michaela Leist

Michaela Leist is thrilled to direct with TCHA!
She graduated from North Central University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and a minor in Youth Ministries. Some of her favorite shows to direct in the past have been Robin Hood and Angel’s Trumpet (a story about F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald). She also enjoys acting and her favorite role as an actress has been Veruca Salt in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

She loves the aspect of theatre that allows people to have an ‘aha!’ moment and learn something new about themselves or about the world around them. She finds joy in being able to artfully tell story, and most importantly, aspects of God’s story.
She resides in NE Minneapolis with her husband, Nick, and cat, Kona. In her free time, she enjoys finding new coffee shops, having game nights with friends, and training for marathons with her husband.
