Auditions for Anne of Green Gables

In conjunction with the Grange exhibit, the Wayne County Museum invites you to another agricultural town called Avonlea as they perform a radio play of the childhood classic Anne of Green Gables.

It tells the story of stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew who hope to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne by mistake, and their lives will never be the same. Her warmth and wit affect everyone around her – even, eventually, the cold Marilla. We follow Anne through her rebellious years, her transformation into a young woman, and her romantic pairing with Gilbert. This play has been charming audiences around the world.

But we need several actors to bring this story to life.

Auditions at the Wayne County Museum on November 7 at 7:00. Sides will be available at auditions, along with audition sheets. If you cannot make the date, we will also accept video auditions. Please contact Heath Radford at if interested or there are any audition questions.
