Based on the best-selling novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, this world-premiere adaptation comes to the stage at Provision Theater. The Cuthberts expect to adopt a boy, but are in for quite a surprise when clever young Anne Shirley steps off the train at Avonlea. Despite her fiery spirit and penchant for getting into trouble, Anne still manages to get into the hearts of every person she meets. It's a heartwarming story for the whole family.

Adapted  by Timothy Gregory

What Parents are Saying

“We can't thank Provision Theater enough for providing (our daughter) with a comfortable and supportive environment and encouraging her amazing growth!”

“Thank you for bringing so much out of my kids; they both loved it and are still cherishing those moments they have spent on the stage.”

“Julia LOVED the class... thank you so much. She had to give a presentation at school last week and she didn't bat an eye... Her confidence is amazing... Thank you.”

“So pleased with the level of enthusiasm and friendliness of the staff at this program. I will be passing along my experience with any mom I know!”

“I am pleased to let you know that Evan loved theater camp! He especially loved the camp leaders and learning to sing and dance. He would come home very excited about practicing the songs and tell me about the fun kids he met there. It was over too soon for him.”

“Last week, my daughter attended a new drama camp at Provision Theater. It was a truly transforming experience for her. After 4 1/2 days of camp, she was on stage, singing, dancing, reciting her lines.... and more importantly, gaining the confidence to do all of these things in front of an audience!”

“I loved that camp was working towards a show at the end of the week. Most camps have lots of fun activities, but without as much of a purpose as Provision's camp did.”

“My daughter Larissa’s experience with Provision Theater has been wonderful. Larissa found summer camp with you at Provision Theater to be the ‘best’ she had. I was very satisfied with Larissa’s everyday progress. She joyfully went there every morning and I found her so very happy at the point of pick up. She learned how to take responsibility on a group project and how important sharing is. It was so amazing to see how the children learned their parts in a very short period time and how they acted professionally in front of an audience on the last day of the camp. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I made about a summer camp for Larissa.”

“Felix and Coco were so proud of their involvement in Wizard of Oz. It was wonderful to hear about the exciting things they did each day. I think the staff made they feel comfortable as well as motivated…(the staff) did a phenomenal job of accommodating different skill levels and balancing the teamwork aspect of the camp. Both my kids had a purely positive experience. They spoke highly of the teachers and their fellow campers.”


Provision Theater's Educational Outreach Program is pleased to offer three different productions for the 2013-2014 school year! Each 40-minute show focuses on challenging issues that young people face in their academic environment--such as bullying, prejudice, and peer pressure--and presents practical tools that equip students to overcome these challenges in an appropriate and positive way. A troupe of diverse, professional actors performs these productions at both primary and secondary schools throughout Chicago and also hosts field trips for school groups in Provision's very own state-of-the-art theater! For more information--including specific shows, educational themes & goals, and cost--contact Education Director, Priscilla Hummel.
