The Wayne County Museum was established in 1988. Our mission is to discover, preserve, document, display, and disseminate historical knowledge and artifacts of Wayne County. We also seek to increase public awareness of the heritage of Wayne County and its environs through exhibits, events, and traditional and digital information sources.
The Museum Players return with the refreshing, contemporary telling of the classic story. Stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew hoped 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.
We hope you'll join us and the Museum Players for this endearing story set in the early 1900's as we close out our current exhibit "Home on the Grange, a History of Helping Local Farmers". Take the time to see the artifacts at the museum and reflect on the impact of the Wayne County Granges. The Granges began in 1867. And while the number of Granges has decreased over the years , the Grantham and Brogden Granges remain active and community-engaged.
All proceeds benefit the Wayne County Museum. This event is part of our annual fundraising efforts that help to provide continuous local historical programming accessible to all members of the public. Contact email@example.com for more information.
"Anne of Green Gables" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com.
Based on the book by L.M. Montgomery. Screenplay by Sylvia Ashby.
