Rilla of Green Gables is a new musical based on the beloved Anne of Green Gables novels by Lucy Maud Montgomery. The timeless score features songs of the period by renowned composers Irving Berlin (Annie Get Your Gun, White Christmas) and Jerome Kern (Show Boat, Swing Time), freshly arranged and orchestrated.
As her sweetheart and brothers leave to fight in World War I, Anne's daughter, Rilla, embarks on her own emotional journey at home that teaches her the importance of selflessness and sacrifice, changing her life forever. Touching, uplifting, and romantic! (from the official website)
The premiere production was in August 2015, in Saratoga Springs, Utah.
