Maud’s Thespians present
by Paul Ledoux
at the Historic Leaskdale Church
Imagine watching a dramatic re-creation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s best-loved story while sitting in the very church (or even the very pew) occupied by the author herself, every Sunday morning for 15 years!
That will be your experience this June when you come to Leaskdale for Paul Ledoux’ hilarious but moving interpretation of Anne of Green Gables, performed in the sanctuary of the Historic Church where Maud’s husband, Ewan MacDonald, was the pastor from 1911 to 1926, and where Maud herself played a leading role in church affairs (including, locals say, directing a troupe of young Sunday School players).
All of your favourite Anne scenes are here: Anne & Matthew at the station, Anne’s apology to Rachel Lynde, Anne & Diana’s tea party, the saving of Minnie Mae, Anne as the Lady of Shallott, brought to life by an experienced and talented cast. With beautiful period costumes and imaginative staging which transforms the church sanctuary into a multitude of Avonlea scenes, you will find yourself transported easily into the magical world of Anne Shirley, one of the world’s favourite literary characters.
It’s a small country church, so seats are limited. Book your tickets now for this intimate encounter with Anne of Green Gables.
