Roundtown Players Present: Anne of Green Gables This Weekend


Roundtown Players opens this weekend with Anne of Green Gables. Carissa Clark plays the titular character and star of the show, Anne Shirley- or “Anne with an E” as she’d prefer you call her. Clark said, “I think the cast is great- it’s a really good cast.” She also spoke on how the script shows a whole range of emotion. “I get to push myself.”

RTP veteran Gracieanne Gray also talked about how she enjoyed the cast, especially getting to share the stage with her father, former Police Chief Wayne Gray, who plays Matthew Cuthbert. In the story, Matthew and his sister Marilla (played by Ka Feola) reach out to an orphanage to adopt a boy to help around the farm. They are not-too-pleasantly surprised when they are instead greeted by the redheaded 11-year-old Anne Shirley. 


Director Laura Lewis picked this script because “It was a story I read as a child and read to my kids.” She said it was a story she really enjoyed, and she chose the script because it had parts for both children and adults. 

When asked why people should come to see Anne of Green Gables, Clark said. “Because it’s awesome. It’s a very entertaining show. People from all ages will enjoy it.” 

The show will be presented on July 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th at 7:30 PM, along with two matinees on July 21st and July 28th at 2:30 PM.
