Anne & Gilbert tells the story of Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe, now young adults teaching in PEI, and later attending Redmond University in Halifax. Gilbert continues to pursue Anne, as she continues to resist him. The musical is based on Anne of the Island and Anne of Avonlea, two of L.M. Montgomery’s sequel novels to her Anne of Green Gables. It was written for the stage by Nancy White, Bob Johnston, and Jeff Hochhauser. Anne & Gilbert debuted in Victoria-by-the Sea in 2005 to sold-out houses. For the past two years it has been performed at the Harbourfont Jubilee Theatre. Last year, the original cast recording soundtrack won an East Coast Music Award.
