PORT GAMBLE — The Port Gamble Theater presents “Anne of Green Gables” Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, June 15 to July 1.

Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors (65 and older) and children (12 and younger). Tickets are available at www.portgambletheater.com.

“Anne of Green Gables” is directed by Scott Snively.

The Port Gamble Theater opened last year after sitting empty and idle for more than six decades.  The space harkens back to the turn of the century in the historic mill town.

Here’s a show synopsis:Anne, a young orphan, finds herself on Prince Edward Island after a childhood spent in strangers’ homes and orphanages. Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, siblings in their 50s and 60s who live together at Green Gables, their Avonlea farmhouse on Prince Edward Island, decide to adopt a boy from the orphan asylum in Nova Scotia to help Matthew run their farm. Through a misunderstanding, the orphanage sends Anne Shirley.

Anne is bright and quick, eager to please and talkative, and extremely imaginative. Anne takes much joy in life and adapts quickly to life in the close-knit farming village. She is something of a chatterbox, which initially drives the duty-driven Marilla to distraction, although shy Matthew falls for her immediately; they are what Anne calls “kindred spirits.”

The cast of 30 includes, from Kitsap, Johanna Jacobsen as Anne Shirley, Ann Biglow as Marilla Cuthbert, Will Stewart as Matthew Cuthbert, Alison Smiley as Diana Barry, and Shirley Bomgaars as Mrs. Barry.
