Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if you enjoy well-acted one person shows, with a movement version of a Greek chorus. Also, if you are a fan of Anne of Green Gables.

Don't see it if you are not prepared/willing to be charmed by this deceivingly basic production. Or do not like dance with your theatre. Or hate Anne.

“’Anne of Green Gables: Part 1’ is dazzling audiences of all ages with its enthralling cast and beautiful message: that life, when experienced to the fullest, is truly worth living...It is nothing short of mesmerizing, a production that casts a spell upon its audience...Not only is the plot riveting to the young, the old and all those in between, the cast brings such vibrancy, versatility and warmth to the stage...’Anne of Green Gables: Part 1’ really could do no wrong.”

"Directed with touching simplicity by Henry and choreographed with a lyrical flow by Lorna Ventura, this 'Anne' tells the well-known story utilizing a combination of voiceover readings, projections, dance, mime and fine acting. Henry has turned Anne into a dance play with an original take on this oft-told tale of a spunky, intelligent and witty young lady guarded by a mute Greek chorus of four who reflect and illuminate her inner thoughts and feelings."

“Ewoldt as Anne, is as Ingenious and chirpy as Peter Pan...but employing the devoted passionate ambition of Harry Potter. She is easily believable and eager for adventure as she struggles to find home...The innocence of this story is a breath of fresh air offering a respite from the dark clouds that daily darken our landscape...The dancers bring a magic quality to the telling of an easy story in a simple time.”

“An enchanting new version...Ewoldt, engagingly portrays all the play’s characters...The choreography feels unnecessary when attempting to help Ewoldt act out the action, mimed conversations...feel extraneous...The production’s projections often similarly over-explain the action...By telling a story that focuses so heavily on the wonder of imagination, ‘Anne of Green Gables: Part I’ should have trusted more in its audiences’ ability to exercise its own.”
